Praia do Diabo

There is a lot of bodyboards in Diabo, it is a quick wave, there are a lots of barrels. To the left side of Diabo there is the “Inferno” that many times is better than Diabo, but in Inferno is a militar area so you can’t sit on the sand.

To the left side of Diabo there is the “Inferno” that many times is better than Diabo, but in Inferno is a militar area so you can’t sit on the sand. When there is no waves in the city, check there it will probably have 1/2m waves.

Diabo has 3 beaches. Be careful the first on the right it’s ok, the second and the third are military areas you can reach these 2 only by padling, the sand access can not be used. When there is no waves in the city it will be probably breaking in Diabo.
