You can go there by an easy trail close to the rocks on the left side of Praia Mole. The beach is pretty consistent with hollow waves both lefts and rights.

Editor’s Comments

You can go there by an easy trail close to the rocks on the left side of Praia Mole. The beach is pretty consistent ( as much as Joaquina ) with hollow waves both lefts and rights. Always less crowded than Praia Mole, the landscape is beautiful because the place is a preserved state beach. Don’t be surprised if you see some people naked at the place, you don’t have to take your clothes off to go there either. This place remains closed during Mullet Fishing Season.
