Praia de Geribá

Praia da Ferradura
Another beach good for water sports is the Praia da Ferradura. You will find many jet skiers, wind surfers and divers in the area. Food and drink kiosks are very visible in this beach and should you wish to ease those muscles after trying out those water sports, massages are available for the beach goers. Inns at this particular beach are very well situated because the centro is only minutes away from it.
Praia da Ferradurinha
The next beach is actually a smaller version of the previous beach and it is called Praia da Ferradurinha.
