Praia do Felix
We decided to visit the famous Praia do Felix for our first and only full day in Ubatuba.

Although there were many people, most stayed on one side of the beach, close to the food stalls and terraces. That left us with one good chunk of the beach, almost for ourselves.
We sunbathed most of the day, resulting in a few sunburns :(, had some of those divine fruit juices, took pictures, and left the place feeling happy and grateful.
