p>Most visitors come to see the maze of colored sand cliffs that line the beach. Local guides (who work for a donation, anything from R$5-R$10/US$2.50-US$5/£1.50-£2.50) will take you through the maze of cliffs, showing off the spots with the best colors. A close-up look at the sand reveals incredible variations in color, ranging from almost pure white to yellow, gold, pink, orange, red, and purple. At the top of the cliff maze there are usually artisans working on new designs of the region's best-known souvenir, sand-filled glass bottles with intricate designs of colored sands.
