I loved this beach, more often than not you see pro surfers being photographed by photographers with long lenses, easy going sun lovers, great local cuisine, and overall safe environment. I bought a bicycle and rode literally on the sand by the waves an hour up, and an hour down each morning...passing a few runners and another biker every now... More

This beach is often used for surfing competition. There are many places to eat or have a refreshing drink. Strangely, they lack toilets in a place , which is otherwise well-frequented. The other curiosity are the huge sand dunes. It is possible to practice a local sport here: sand surfing!

We were there on a beautiful sunny day. The beach was crowded but not too crowded. There seems to b a shortage of parking and public bathrooms, but the beach seems safe and is beautiful.

it is a very beatiful beach, also with the Dunas where you can climb and go down with a sandy board ( rent by very little price). also there is restaurants and you can take a shower of fresh water after the beach.

When the weather is really hot, there's nothing better than going to Joaquina's cold waters! If you want confort, you can sit at the tables in the entrance of the beach and ask for a beer and enjoy your view :)

Atmospheric, crowded if you want it or not if you walk along for a few minutes. Give sand boarding a go in the nearby sand dunes, but there are no ski lifts to take you up so you'll do some exercise. Beware of transport links! Bus took easily over an you to arrive, and then there was a tonne of... More

Nice beach but water is quite cold - good for surfers. Possibility to eat there - you can choose just snack or go for restaurant for a meal. Water is clean. Sometime little but crowded.

little choice in restaurants and expensive. Great surf on lovely big beach. Good parties in the evening but really out of the way to get to. In high season time the bus properly or you will get in serious traffic jams. Good for sand dune surfing
