There are two hypotheses to explain its name: the first relates to the arrows used by the native people; and the other, more likely, assumes it came from a plant abundantly found in local swamps, which is used to make arrows and the arrows floss. This beach is 400m long. Small but very beautiful, it lies between the beaches of Boa Viagem and Icaraí. Two historical rocks can be seen from there: Índio Stone (resembling the head of a native brazilian with a headdress) and Itapuca Rock (from the Tupi language, “pierced rock”), inspiring poets and painters.
