Praia do Amor
The Praia do Amor (Love Beach) is located between Central Beach and Chapadão, and it is considered excellent for surfing.
The name of the beach, which is isolated by high cliffs, comes from one of these big cliffs which is in the shape of a heart.
Considered by residents as one of the most beautiful beach in the area, it is also the a favorite of the tourists, who find long stretches of golden sand, blue sea, beautiful views of the cliffs and good waves for surfing.
Access is by Rua da Praia do Amor, off Dolphin Bay Avenue, where a makeshift staircase leads to the sands. At low tide, the more adventurous can reach by walking from the Central Beach.
On the far right is Pedra do Moleque, a barrel (or kite) -shaped rock, (Pipa in Portuguese), a term that ended up baptizing the district.
