 Access

From Florianópolis, drive north on BR-101 Highway. Stay tuned to the big sign warning the "Gov. Celso Ramos" city entrance. When you see it, slow down, so you will not miss it. Drive more 18km to the little town Gov. Celso Ramos. When you get there, right after the Elementary School after mainland, turn right to reach Palmas beach in the other side the big hill. There are signs; you won't miss it. All the way is asphalt. Very nice driving and very nice sights to see. Very easy to find.

 Additional Information

Palmas is a powerfull beach break, known in Brazil as Santa Catarina's Puerto Escondido version. It is not so consistent as Florianópolis spots are, because it pumps only with east swells, sometimes it works with southeast too. But when it pumps with offshore winds you will see a really powerfull barrels machine. If it gets bigger than 6ft, you have to be sure about what you are going to do outside, because de tube is very strong and you have only 3ft water deep. The perfect condition is 3ft-4ft east triangule swell with south, southwest, west or nortwest winds, early in the morning. Locals are fine, but don't think the waves belong only to you. Be kind and they'll like you.

Atmosphere

The beach is a very familiar place. There is no hot night life. There are few restaurants. No big structures. There is a gas station, no bank agencies, a small police station and some minimarkets. In the fishers village, there are also good restaurants, an ice cream buffet, a surf shop. It is a place to rest with your family. Don't miss your photo machine. The sight is fantastic!

General

Heavy wave! When over pumping 3ft, barrels, barrels and barrels, strongness, fast and powerfull. Better watch yourself when big.
Everyone from the cities around know when Palmas is working, so it's VERY crowded with the right conditions.

In 1988 Roxanne Brown noted: "Thirty-two years after she attracted international attention for sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Mrs. Parks's ardent devotion to human rights still burns brightly, like a well-tended torch that ignites her spirit and calls her to service whenever she is needed."
