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.

Joaquina Beach Reviews
mar geladíssimo, praia boa para quem surfa, não recomendo para quem procura uma mar calmo ou pretende levar crianças, no mais a praia é badalada, cheia e bonita. more »The beach is great, good for those who surf, do not recommend for those looking for a calm sea or want to take children, the beach is lively, full and beautiful.
Praia linda com gente bonita. Mas o que mais gostei além da praia foram as dunas que você consegue “surfar” é um passeio que vale a pena se fazer. Estive a última vez em novembro de 2013. more »Beautiful beach with beautiful people. But what I liked the most besides the beach were the dunes that you can "surf" is a tour that is worth doing. I was the last time in November 2013.
Great beach experience, but it's not the easiest beach to get to. The sand dunes and the rocks nearby definitely add to the experience.
