Nice views and waves. Too many people. The place has been ruined by reckless building of condominiums and apart hotels.

on this deplorable island which offers nothing but high prices and pitiful places. when it s not raining (and it rains more than in england,really!!!) locals will try to rip you off with 30 us pizzas and 4 buck beers. okay back to the beach. far away , and less low class people. very windy but nicer than all the rest. if you have to kill some tiime have a look at this beach. nice ! but not enough for more than 3 points

Praia Brava is very interesting not only as a beach scenery but also as an architectural and urban planning solution. The site, located at the northeast most point of the Island of Santa Catarina, is divided by a wide avenue that separates two groups of pretty large condominiums: some that are beach front and others touch the rain forest on the hills that surrounds Praia Brava. However, no one is more than 200 yards from the beach. The waves are strong here (thus the name Brava), the sand very white and the view is absolutely beautiful. January is when tourists flock into Praia Brava, specially Argentineans, to rent flats and apartments in the condos (between US$130 to US$350 a day). During this period there is plenty of young people and a great amount of activities going on on the beach (shows, parties, etc.). Thus, January is not a month to rest, since Brava is in action day and night. Its excellent and fashionable bars/restaurants offer a reasonable option of tropical drinks and good food for the young crowd that occupies their tables and spaces on the sand. Besides, beach vendors complement one�s diet or beach needs with all kinds of articles, from pina-colada through gorgeously embroidered cotton hammocks. So, this is all perfect for those who appreciate summer noise and complicate traffic (do not try to get to or leave from Brava between 10 am through 6 pm). I, on the other hand, prefer Praia Brava on its calmer months: December, March and April (the rest of the year maybe a little too windy or too cold) when all is quiet and you can take time on your own. However, you will be better off if you have a rented car.
