Very easy to find, when is on is a fantástic wave with good barrels. Respect the locals they could be very friendly..otherwise...
The spot have a very good vibe,'it's a paradise, very calm and receptive place with a lot of natural beauty. It's one of the most popular places to surf in Brazil. Itaúna, the other beach of Saquarema is even better and holds biger swells.
Very cool place.

Great place - I went there last year. Left Cuba and went there with a new board from Rico de Souza, greatest shaper from Brazil. There were big swell and nice locals. It helps to speak the language. Local really had fun showing where the best spots were and was a great day.
