It’s a paradise spot. It’s a small beach with a virgin forest around. There’s the Prainha municipal park. The first and unique beach park in Rio. Good parking, bathrooms, stores, snack bars. You can find all you need there!!!

Very nice place to stay all day long. Pretty ladies sun bathing on the sand, nice atmosphere. When you have a big southwest swell paddle by the rocks, and you’ll get to the right place easily.

3 good spots there!!! The left spot: It’s a powerful left with a barrel and a long wall for manoeuvres. It breaks from 2 to 8 feet with E and SE Swell. Sometimes a short right close to the rocks breaks too !!.Right spot : It’s a long and manoeuvrable right. It breaks with SE,S and SW swell. On big days you can ride a 10 feet clean and strong right. Middle : Fun surf. All size, all swell direction. Lefts and rights.
