Praia das Maçãs is a small beach town just around the corner from the well-known surf spot Praia Grande. Its narrow beach offers consistent surf, but the quality of the waves depend a lot on the sand bars since there are not so many peaks. It’s a beach break with rocks on both sides and sand in the middle. The sand part is suitable for all levels. Since the bay is not so wide, this spot gets easily crowded in the summer.
