Place where the ancient fishermen used to kill the whales that they fished. Excellent surfing spot, you have to drive until Praia da Armação and then cross the small river walking.

Place where the ancient fishermen used to kill the whales that they fished. Excellent surfing spot, you have to drive until Praia da Armação and then cross the small river walking. Everybody knows the place. Good with S wind not too strong. Powerful waves, short rides. There’s always some crowd there. On big days the waves tend to break more at the middle of the beach, on smaller close to the rocks.
