The beach is named after the three species of sea turtles (tartaruga, in Portuguese) which thrive in these warm waters. Although this beach is bit far from the central part of the city, a plethora of tourist facilities located nearby make it one of the most popular leisure spots in the region. Bring your snorkeling gear, or rent it nearby, for a colorful adventure in the natural pools formed by a series of coral reefs. You can also windsurf and kiteboard here, or explore several trails leading to other beaches farther up the coast.
