Praia das Maçãs

3/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Praia das Maçãs is a small and cozy beach town just around the corner from the well-known surf spot Praia Grande. Its narrow beach offers consistent surf, but the quality of the waves depends a lot on the sand banks.

It’s a beach break with rocks on both sides and sand in the middle. The sand part is suitable for all levels. Since the bay is not so wide, this spot gets easily crowded in the summer. It’s a good option with smaller swells and little or no wind.
