This is a little far to get, specially if your unfit or have some limitation. Still, is a perfect balance between nature and sea. So many birds and sea creatures to see. This is a naturist beach, but not mandatory. Still, is great for nature...More

This was our favourite beach in Floripa. It's beyond Praia Mole and is clothing optional and lightly populated. The vendors are great and prices are super cheap, and it's nice and quiet.

Great beach, nice views, good walk to get there, a must for nature and sex lovers. In the bushes behind the beach lots of things happen, especially for gay folks, but i have been told straight couples do also have fun back there. Horny, lustfull,...More

Nice beach to surf. You must to walk from Praia Mole to reach Galheta. If you like to join the naturalism, feel free to do it. Beautiful beach.

lovely, small-medium waves for amatuer surfers. no screaming kids and families. some gay cruising and open fondling but ignore them. just lay bare, soak up the sun and relax with the sound of the waves.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches on an island of beautiful beaches....It is where the boys are near and is the one that tolerates wearing no clothes...Consequently it is not crowded with families with kids and leaves you with a feeling that it...More

This is one of the best beaches of the world. Warm bay waters, broad beaches, well-stocked kiosks, clothing optionality, fresh water showers, extensive trails and rock areas to explore, all make for a wonderful day of your choosing.
