I was expecting this beach to be much nicer for the fame it has, but truth is it is a small beach, not much to do or see

This is a beautiful beach with numerous places to buy beer and get bar food. There aren't taxis. So if you go by taxi, you should check the schedule of the city bus, which goes back about once an hour. Terrible traffic jams on weekends.

This beach hosted many surf tournaments in the past, it is a must see for nature lovers. Make sure to visit the adjacent sand dunes, there are times you can even find natural pools inside the dunes.

If you want to see Brazilian beach life at the height of its craziness, come here! Buzzing with life with people crammed in shoulder to shoulder, it's a heaving mass of bodies. Plenty of umbrellas and chairs to rent, good surf and s couple of restaurants. Just not my thing.

I just made a walk of about 4 hours but I loved Joaquina Beach. The sea is bit rough, the water is clean I didn't see any constructions by the beach, the are some dunes by the beach.

Perfect beach for long walks and great for swimming as the big waves brakes further deep into the ocean allowing for surfers and swimmers to share with no danger of crashing into each other. I wish there were more care with its cleaningness from part of the local business.

wide long windy beach, great for kite surfing and surfing. You'll love it. Close to lagoa, a neighborhood of Floripa full of restaurants, night life, next to huge dunes and to a lake

All in the title. Lovely long stretch of sand. Picturesc rocks at one end. Nice waves for beginner/intermediate surfers. Jaw dropping sand dunes. Good array of cafes/ food outlets.

Visited for just a quick look. Great place to spend a full day. Plenty of places to eat, lay on the beach, and watch surfers. Water seemed too violent for swimming.
