Considered by many experts one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil, Praia do Espelho enchants for the variation of colors of its crystalline waters on sunny days, which can be admired from the sand or, better, from the top of the cliffs. At low tide, natural pools reveal themselves – prepare your snorkel. All this beauty is preserved because of the access to the place, which is not very easy. Those traveling by car must face 20 kilometers of dirt road, which can be impassable on rainy days.
