"This is the main beach."

This place was founded in 1946 and its name is due to word "Yryry" that, in Tupi-Guarani, means oyster. It is at 86 km to the south of Vitória and the access is easy, made through asphalted highways: BR 101, BR 262 or for "Rodovia do Sol" (Highway of the Sun). The city is small, but it has good infrastructure. 

"Here, during the carnival nights, you can't even walk... "

The city has four beaches separated for rocks. They are: 


"Areia Preta" (Black Sand) - it's possible to see "Monte Aghá" (Agha Hill) in Piúma. It is a beach quite frequented by the youngers. There you find kiosks, people playing volleyball, riding "banana-boats", etc... 

"I'm standing "on the rocks"... "  

"Costa Azul" (Blue Coast) - it is the central beach of Iriri. It is the most crowded and with more tourist. Several services are offered to the "outsiders" like typical food, schooner trips, rubber rings, floating bananas, diving and oceanic fishing 

"There are some great beaches here."  

"lnhaúma" - it is a fishermen village. The guys say that they already caught the largest blue marlin of Brazil over there. It is possible to see some turtles swiming.  

"Namorados" (Lovers) - bay of calm sea that is used to anchor the boats. It has food and cold beer. 

"There is a stage here, where some shows happen."
