    The same beach as Joaquina, but further south. The Praia do Campeche itself it is located in front of the Campeche Island, the road leaves you directly there. When it is breaking that’s the place to be. Needs big or good size S swells and W wind. Works usually during the winter on the coldest days. Some surfers compare it to Jeffrey’s Bay. It is for sure one of the Brazil’s best wave. The wage is a right which creates long rides, with hollow sections. Awesome even to watch.

    When it is breaking always crowded, but there’s always one for you. Strong riptides, creating long paddles. Close to this spot there’s another good one called Riozinho (Small Creek). It creates hollow , powerful waves, with barrels and barrels. It is located north from the Campeche main entrance, close to a small sports gymn. Ask locals. With S,SE swell hollow rigths, with E swell hollow lefts. Best winds W or really light NE.

    Also check the peaks Igrejinha and Riozinho, located further north, these peaks work better on SE or E swell and use to not get crowded.
