“Very quiet in the off season”
Review of Praia Grande Beach

It was perfect for us. The weather was beautiful, we were able to rent chairs for R$10 for all day (for 2). The hotel provided towels and an umbrella.

We enjoyed watching the surfers and just lounging.

There are a lot of vendors walking the beach, but they were respectful of "No, thank you".

The beach in July was comfortably full, but not crowded at all. Only wish the day was longer! But then I am sure it would be more crowded.

We go here with family from Sao Paulo when we visit Brazil. Big beach, just hire a table/chairs and a beach umbrella, sit back and enjoy the world go by. Best way to spend a day at the beach,

It is a beach with a lot of kiosks where you can have lunch and buy drinks and snacks. Is is very busy in holidays and sunny weekends with lots of children and sunbathers. If you like crowd places, go there. It is not so difficult to park.

Way , way too crowded , A real zoo during the summer. Very easy to lose your kids , strong currents , loud music.

When it is not high season it is okay...but there are far better places.

This was my second visit to Praia Grande beach and perhaps I am being a little bias. I absolutely love this place, from the golden sandy beach to the complete lack of hotels (lots of apartments for rent stretching along the beachfront), this for me is somewhere I could happily retire. There is a varied selection of bars along the beach as well as a number of vendors situated on the beach selling everything from clothing to jewelry. The sea makes for good surfing yet its also great fun for the family, the waves are adventurous without being too dangerous (though some parts have some powerful undercurrents). All in all Praia Grande feels like its a little slice of paradise. The beach, although busy, really is beautiful, and what is so appealing is that there doesn't really feel like there is anything else around, just clear blue sky, a golden beach and an inviting ocean.
