    Editor’s Comments

    Canto das Aranhas is the end of Mocambique, It’s a great option in NE winds due to a rocky coast that protect the waves from these winds. On certain conditions this place offers fast and strong left-handers.

    There is no infrastructure on the beach, so bring food and water. Access by car trough Rio Vermelho road.
