Daniela is located on the northern side of the Island, between Forte Beach and Barra do Sambaqui. It's a beautiful and calm location, far from the big tourist centers, and a lot of people go there to run away from the urban stress.
The neighborhood is well planned with the family/weekend homes in mind, no big buildings or big developments.
The beach is not very wide and there is a business feel to the beach with several bars and restaurants. Daniela is very popular because of its calm and warm waters, almost like a swimming pool.
