Santo Agostinho Things to Do

    One of the most charming beaches that we saw in Pernambuco is Calhetas.

    A very small beach, with difficult access, is dominated by a bar (Bar do Artur) that you have to cross to reach the beach. It's a place for friendly meetings and parties, as the walls in the bar clearly testify.

    One more beach: We just passed there... not ugly... not spectacular... a steep access...

    Well, a good place (and probably affordable) to rest in natural environment.

    Opposite to Suape, Gaibu, in the northern side of the Cape of Santo Agostinho is a large beach with only a hotel and lots of private houses.

    It seems another beach for locals, until massive tourism dictates another law!

    No, I'm not going to talk about the food, because I only had a... bottle of water there, but it's easy to understand that if anything happens in the area, 99% of the chances will be... there.

    The ambiance is a promise, the sympathy of the owners is absolute, and the faces of hundreds of people in the photos made me... jealous. If I knew, I would not miss a day in the beach and a dinner in Artur's bar.

    Latin widows wear black. Well... most of the time.

    In Cabo de Santo Agostinho, a widow was so sad with her husband's death, that she decided to use his favorite color. And not only in her clothes: she even repainted their house in the same color. Looking at the picture you have to agree: such a sad story!

    Brazilian are generally poor, but they have ideas.

    What's the cheapest solution to make a "Jangada" float? Easy, folks: A series of empty bottles in the bottom. And there it was, in the beach of Suape, the raft ready to use.
