It's 100km south of Florianópolis. Drive south through BR101 Highway (very dangerous road), enter at Imbituba main entrance and drive all the way to the beach. That's it!

This is the beach where WCT Brazil sets up every yaer. When it's big it is compared to Sunset - North Shore, Oahu. Holds 15ft tall smilling like a child, a big ramp to both sides, rights and lefts. It never closes out and it has a very generous canal to paddle in/out. So you can always reach the line up, even when it huge. Like Campeche Rights, Joaquina, Silveira and Guarda do Emabú, Vila composes the Top 5 of Santa Catarina.
Great spot, one of the best brazilian waves.
You can surf it with 3 feet and also with 15 feet+ !
- Place of the WCT Brazil event.
- The wave starts fat and goes through a hollow section, sometimes barreling.

i dont get it... - y do they hold the 'ct here every year? this wave is so bad...the face is flat, and there are no lots of equally flat sections. its literally painful to watch on the web cast. they would be better off in huntington beach in ca this time of year. it least it wouldnt be flat

Underrated - This spot is underrated. It is, along with Guarda, Silveira, Saquarema e Cacimba do Padre, one of the best of Brazil. It worthes at least four stars. Watch out the localism. Holds big swells, easy access, easy to get to the lineup, paddling close to the island near the beach.
