This beach is also known as "the sun's door". If you are there earlier in the morning, you'll be the first person to see the sun in Brazil, in the South America, and in the Americas. Not counting some islands Brazil has miles from coast.

Usually some people confuse Cabo Branco lighthouse, the highest place near to the Ponta do Seixas with the eastern light sand small beach. Although, take a look on this pic you will understand easily.
