One of the best beaches in the south of Brazil, this paradisiac place is surrounded by the Uruburu green mountain range, by the "da Madre" river where colorful fishing boats cross tourists to the beach, by the dunes that reach to Gamboa beach 7 km away, and by the majestic waves that make this place a surf spot and nature lovers.
The beach is young, with national and international tourists from all ages. Lots of virgin nature, and a very lively spot with daily events going on during the summer.
