Praia Pequena

3/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Praia Pequena is located just north of its bigger brother Praia Grande. It’s a smaller beach with less peaks, but the surf is quite consistent and the vibe often better. It also provides more shelter from the northern winds, which means cleaner conditions during the summer months.

It can work on all tides; the best tide depends on the sand banks. Around mid tide is usually your best bet. Park your car in front of the Nortada restaurant and follow the path to the north, down the cliffs.
