    Located extremely north, holds best conditions with East swell and South wind, during summer gets full of argentinians tourists. Good spot for medium waves, tends to lose quality when bigger than 5 ‘. If you are close by check it out (it is located close to Praia dos Ingleses / Praia do Santinho Area).

    The south corner works in big E or SE swells and produces long right handers, the best wave in this place.
