Praia da Cacimba do Padre is the favorite of surfers thanks to the perfect waves that form next to Morro dos Dois Irmãos. The extensive strip of sand surrounded by hills covered with native forest gives the appearance of a wild paradise.

At the beginning of the beach there are some very rustic restaurant options and on the beach we offer more typical dishes of the region such as the traditional fish wrapped in banana leaves.
