Praia do Maço, Palhoca

(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy a sunny day at Praia do Maço, noted for calm waters and a narrow stretch of sand surrounded by a strip of lush green vegetation. This is the area’s largest and busiest beach, attracting local and visiting families with small children. These clean waters are ideal for swimming, fishing, and water sports. Nearby is a small fishing village, where you can have a meal of lightly roasted fish and a cold drink. The beach is situated between two hills, and along the sand you can find several large rock formations, which can be used as diving or sunbathing platforms. During the peak of the summer season, this beach becomes a cultural center of the area, hosting frequent musical concerts and sporting events.

  • The residents of the region of Palhoça love this place. This quiet beach and a very familiar option. The sea is quiet, generally. And no complaints of violence in the region. For those who want to stay longer for houses to rent during the season or guesthouses as an option.

  • A Praia do Maço é um lugar incrível, acessível apenas através de trilhas. Pequena, possui apenas um bar. Local muito utilizado para camping. No verão fica com sombra cedo, pois o sol se esconde atrás do morro.
  • Very wild and natural Beach
