 Additional Information

The waves break trough all the bay depending on the swell direction, When it is an E or ENE swell the left corner breaks the best lefts, but when a big SE or ESE comes around, the rights next to the small island fires trough the bay.
The bay is protected form the southerly winds and the West wind is even better. Only the East wind can ruin it....

Atmosphere

Its a peacefull place, great for camping. Leo's Camping is the best option. If possible, start taking B12 vitamins at least 10 days before heading castelhanos...it will help keeping the moskitos away
DO NOT LITTER!!!!

- This is a remote beach on Ilha Bela. Its hard to believe you are just 3 hours from the chaotic city of Sao Paulo..(plus one hour drive across the jungles..)This coastline really delivers the goods..and Castelhanos is one of those places that will be hard to forget. The mosquitos are the only setback, no joke these buggers will f@%k you up..bring repelent and then some bring more...they love gringo blood. oh yeah and when its flat everywhere else.. on an east swell this place can be firing!!!
