It is located at the same little town of Palmas beach, Governador Celso Ramos. But when you reach Palmas, keep driving to a disctrict called Armação da Piedade. After the hill, turn left and head to Caravelas beach (locals call it Grande beach). Park your car in the in front of beach, near to the lifeguard point. Walk by the beach to the right, go across the trail to the other side of the rocks. It's there!

It is a powerfull lefthander, that pumps only in east swells. You drop the walls very close to the rocks and you ride them towards the middle of the beach. A lot of snaps, off the tops and floaters. Very fast wave when it pumps ok. Some short tube rides in the inside.
A great nature around. Good vibrations. People like to watch the action from the rocks. In the summer, a lot of young chicks. They like surfers. Some locals are boring, but ain't no big deal.
You have to be lucky to surf at Tinguá. It's a very excelent wave, but it is very temperamental. It only show its power once in a while.
