Beautiful wild waved beach

As the subject describes. Its beautiful, has loads of big rocks on either side to relax and climb. Has some big rather strong waves. One of my favourites in floripa.

In Florianopolis this was one of the best beaches I went to, I really appreciate the beach and the sea, if you go in the morning there's not even that much people!

We where totaly alone on the beach exeptmfor some surfers. The beach is very stretched and you have to walk for at last two,hours to reach the end of it. Very nice restaurants on the beach with a lot of fresh fish.

One of the best beaches. Great surf. Has beach restaurants bars as well but plenty of natural space. Over Xmas, new year it can take a while to get to as traffic can be bad.
