#2 of 13 in Things to do in Palhoca
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.

    Quiet place, where you can take a walk at dawn. The most radical, there is the option of hiking trails of varying levels of difficulty. Calm water, ideal for families with children.

    Out of season the beach is quiet. Unique beauty! Wide strip of sand. Still waters. Amazing place where I find peace, quiet and peace.
