Laid back surfer beach with beautiful people. Very relaxing to spend the day. We also enjoyed a lot a nice beach lounge called Tropical with delicious food, friendly staff and great cocktails.

Really beautiful beach and found it to actually be quite clean. Parking is available along the road for around R$10. A mix of locals and visitors and a number of cabanas/bars along the length of it. The gay bar is the furthest north playing pop music (Bar Deca). There is a great rock formation at the very north of the... More

Really lovely rock formations on the hills and North of the beach. Sand was soft and water clean and not too cold. Beach vendors for all sorts of stuff- chairs, snacks, clothes etc. actually I saw one selling clothes that had a sign up showing all the credit cards he took- even Amex & Diners which I thought was hilarious!...

Praia Mole is the most popular beach in Floripa and the location for the gay beach. It's gorgeous and not too crowded. My only warning is the Deca bar's music. If you're into circuit party music at 11 a.m., this is your place! It would be such a gem if they got the music right. A little more chill and... More

This beach is know by having a lot of surfers and this atracted a lot of young people. You can rent chairs right there if you want (R$10 for each one). You cab also spend the day in nice "bangalô", little confortable tents in the bars. There you can enjoy the view with a great drink and food service... But... More

Nice big beach but better for surfers than swimmers. Water is cold and waves are big. Just few possibilities to eat or refresh - better to bring your own.

This beach is very tranquil and the scenery with the mountains and rocks is perfect. There are a few places to get a bite to eat and enjoy...
