Create an itinerary including Joaquina Beach
Due to its soaring sand dunes and stellar waves, Joaquina Beach is one of the best and most legendary surfing beaches in the country, and perhaps the world. During summer, which is from December to February in Brazil, this beach is extremely busy with bronzed bodies and cars trapped in traffic jams just to spend a little bit of time on the sandy white beach. The winter in Brazil, around June through August is the best time for surfing on the waves that reach up to 2.5 m (8 ft) high.

  • It’s ok. Actually a very busy beach so if you’re into that then it might be the right place for you. What’s great is the dunes sitting in the background. If you climb up you’ll get a very picturesque view of the beach! Also the rocks on the left side of the beach is a cool spot to check out !
  • Beautiful beach but today was windy and cold.
