This was our favourite beach in Floripa. It's beyond Praia Mole and is clothing optional and lightly populated. The vendors are great and prices are super cheap, and it's nice and quiet.

Nice beach to surf. You must to walk from Praia Mole to reach Galheta. If you like to join the naturalism, feel free to do it. Beautiful beach.

lovely, small-medium waves for amatuer surfers. no screaming kids and families. some gay cruising and open fondling but ignore them. just lay bare, soak up the sun and relax with the sound of the waves.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches on an island of beautiful beaches....It is where the boys are near and is the one that tolerates wearing no clothes...Consequently it is not crowded with families with kids and leaves you with a feeling that it...More
