Really good spot to surf, longboarders, early in the morning is the best, getting the tide filling up, barrels, so beautiful beach, lots of fun on this spot, respect for locals, and have a really good time.
Always break, it's a place to have fun !!! Warm water and sunny days !!! Beautiful girls at the beach!!!
If you go by Car you can park along the beach. Bus dont cross the beach.
Lots of fun, people play on the beach all day long, paddle balls, surf of course, girls, and everything that your can imagine about this spot, rave partys at night, really fun place.
There're some rocks who make the difference!!! Choose the right spot( There are a lot !! )
Very nice place to stay all day long. Familiar , nice atmosphere, nature, lagoon...
when you have a big southwest swell you can surf good waves.
Really nice people, good vibes, amazing surf, a lot of fun.
I always say : This is the best spot of the world !!!! Of course it's not !! But I grew up surfing this point In 23 years of surfing, for sure i had some fun !!!
The surf is great and the view of the moutain and the lagoon behind the beach makes it a wonderful wallpaper.

Really good - Very good vibe, no locals , no building(very good and clean view) not so crowded as the other spots and the best ... it's always breaking!!! when it gets flat in all other spots in rio, you can be sure there will be some waves there!
