From mainland, take the SC-401 highway, hading Canasvieiras beach. When you get the Canasvieiras district, drive all the way to the left, so you reach the Canasvieiras and Jurerê beach corner. There you surf. That's why people call it "Canasjurê". The waves is fast, long and break very close to the sand, like a point break. The only problem is it needs a huge, monsters east swell to pump, whit south wind blowing calm. In other words: it pumps once in life, once in death.

This beach is crowded of Argentina's tourists in the summer and rarely pumps. When it pumps, expect to surfe with thouisand around.
Nice beach and great experience, the water is hot all year and full of shit in the summer.
Excelent during storms of East swell (it has to has over 10ft to start pumping)
