This beach is located at the extremly south of Florianópolis, so you have to go by the West Side of the island (region without waves) also is protected by a hill. If you want to surf there, you'd better expect a 6ft south swell with north quadrant wind. And make sure you are in absolute perfect phisical conditions. Besides walking 40 minutos to get there, when you get there you'll find this is the most heavy wave of the island. An amazing righthanerd pumping beside the rocks towards the beach. Tubes, tubes and more tubes. incredible nature around. If you have, take 2 surfboards. So you won't need to go back home earlier and sad if you miss one. The wave is really strong and the bottom is very hollow.
People go to Naufragados to camp and/or to enjoy this quiet beach. So take your garbage back. Keep it clean and virgin, so you can have it for a long time.
Go only if you really know that the waves are pumping, cause you gonna spend a lot of gas and time to reach the brach. The bigger the swell is, the challenging and the perfect it gets.

Nice clean place - This is a challenging wave that breaks quite fast and hollow but it does need at least solid 6-8ft swell, north wind and a mid-hightide . Its also a mission to get there but well worth it ... low crowd factor too. 4* not 5*Keep the Beach Clean.OK Kevin.
