The Break

Praia da Areia Branca has a handful of different breaks along the expansive beach. The main breaks are mellow sand-bottom beach breaks that go right and left. A consistent river mouth break also works on the southern end of the beach. Longboards, funboards, and shortboards are all good here depending on the tide and swell. Consistency is year-round with countless nearby breaks that are easily accessed if these aren't working.
