Amazing beach to surf every day, to walk on the sand, to stay lazy under the sun. But, if you wanna peace, dont go in the holidays or weekends.

I went there in a weekend at low season, it was very nice, lots of people doing sports as surfing, paraglide and jogging. The beach is wavy, the sand is white, the water very clear and cold! Everything good!

Gorgeous water, beautiful beach, great waves, really nice locals. Near the rocks is a great place to take the kids to swim. Surfers love this beach, you can rent great boards with Nena at the Escola de Surf de Saquarema.

This is one of the best surf spots from Brazil. They have really good surfing during all year. This beach is also beautiful and not super crowded as the Rio de Janeiro ones

Serious surf on parts...... surfers heaven . In fact on the world championship circuit. Quiet during the week but busy most weekends in Summer. Places on the beach with calmer waters but sometimes cool even with summer temperatures in the 30's.

For sure the best waves of the state. At the left side of the beach near the site named point you can get long lefts and short but good rights with a east and sotheast swell. At the right side you can get really hollow...More
