Lovely sand; the ocean was troubled on the day we went so it was hard to get a footing. Lots of surfers. Techno music was fun but you can sit away from it as well. Galeto Beach is a trek away; supposed to be a nudist beach but Brazilians are too conservative to disrobe; we chose to stay on Mole... More

Many options on this beach and it´s easy to get to. Plenty of places to park. There´s a great surf/yoga school and juice bar on the southern end that a lot of beach dwellers don´t seem to know about. They take walk-ins and have beginner courses at 11am and 3pm daily. Friendly people. Will return to this place again.

Visited this beach with my daughter on a quite day. Parking is easy as we parked on the road. Many brazillians are not happy to do this, and there are many places charging 5-10Rs a hour to look after the car, and in the shade too. The rocks at the far left end of the beach are great to climb,... More

amazing beach. Have a look on the dragon on the right side. Surfing there is a bit dangerous due to strong current.

Under all the paragliders at the bottom of the big hill. Good place to swim and surf. Surf not as serious as guidebook says, but we were there in the calm (summer) season.

We stayed in a rental home across from this beach. The sand is soft, the view is beautiful, and the amenities are great. There are a number of restaurants on the beach for drinks and food and the lifeguards were very present and attentive. On either side of the beach there are large rock formations great for climbing and exploring.... More

It's great for surfing. Since I am not a surfer, I don't go there, as it doesn't have other great facilities. Tends to get very crowded in the season, with lots of cars parked along the road (full car park!). I would prefer to stay on the bus to Barra da Lagoa.
