Surfers from all over the world flock to Praia Grande for its moderately large waves and fun atmosphere. This sandy shoreline offers year-round swells and more opportunities for water sports like skimboarding and bodyboarding. With such a long stretch, it's easy to find a space to yourself on the sand or on the waves. Although the waters are slightly colder than on southern beaches, visitors will find plenty of amenities available for a comfortable beach visit. Sun loungers and umbrellas are available for rent, and restaurants are steps past the sand.
