Praia Brava is a wonderful beach with not many buildings and houses, great for surfing and diving, isolated from other parts of the northern coast of Sta Catarina Island by a range of mountains (reachable by a paved road). It is very close to a beautiful town called Cachoeira do Bom Jesus, where you can do your shopping and enjoy some night life. During summer time, Praia Brava is the place to be! Big parties and lots of beautiful people (mostly young) roam around the beach day and night.

Thinking in something calm and beautiful, here is the place. You can find anything you may need. Good houses and good neighbors, easy to access the beach and to find a spot in the parking lot.

the beach is lovely and quite crowded in the summer, there is a bridge across to a small island where you can also get the boat to Isle of Campeche, but be aware that the boat needs to be booked in advance and it may be 2 weeks before you can get on the boat. we stayed off the beach and went into a little cove which we had to ourselves
