Praia Joaquina |  the lefts get really good

Praia Joaquina

Praia Joaquina is one of the best and most popular spots in the Brazilian Region of Santa Catarina. Brazilians love surfing! So in summer it can get very crowded here.

The spot is really easy to find. Just follow the road from Barra da Lagoa to the beach. There are a couple of restaurants and even Hotels there so you can chill out after a good session. On the left end where you enter the beach is a rocky headland with a sandbar that creates very good left handers. However if it's smaller or you ur not up to crowded takeoff zones just walk down the beach to the south and find your own peak...
