Placaford Beach

Placaford Beach

Located in the Piatã neighborhood, we find the Placaford Beach, between the beach of Itapuã Beach and downtown which is roughly 20 km away.   The Placaford Beach name came about because of Ford automobile company's promotional card which stood in front of the beach and which was considered very fashionable during the 60s.


Calm waves and warm waters mark this beach, and natural pools form at low tides due to the proximity of reefs.  The natural pools are considered ideal for swimming in, and provide great protection for children who wish to swim in the ocean.  A small strip of sand lined with kiosks selling beverages and food, high dunes, and coconut trees pretty much sum this beach up.  Come at low tide and enjoy the natural pools and a bit swimming.
