This is a beach in the north of Floripa island that is overcrowded with Argentinian visitors who prefer warn fwater. Unfortunately it is now overcrowded and is not as clean as it should be. It is not the best of what the island has to offer anymore.

This area is pretty touristy. Beach is nice, but no waves. Drive through type town, stay in Praia Mole for your vacation.

Very good infrastructure - it´s the second city on the island - but the beach is usually full. Try the southern beaches instead.
