    This place is such a paradise for beginners surfers of all ages, as surf school operates here providing a safe and fun place to get your first waves. Also Barra da Lagoa is a trendy place full of young people from all over the world, you will make new friends everyday.

    Barra da Lagoa used to be a fishermen village, but it has became a destination for travelers due to its great infrastructure of hospitality. There you can find nice and cheap accommodation, good food, internet access, nightlife, snack bars, supermarkets and many shops.

    For experienced surfers this might be a good option in a solid E swell and S wind it works pretty rarely, and when it’s happening the locals dominate the line up. Plan to get there early to get your share.
