Praia do Maço, Palhoca

(4.4/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Beach clean, with few waves. There are two beaches. The beach and the beach below. More nominate top beach because it has less fishermen making the cleanest. Take your umbrella because it has few trees around. Has enough salespeople and two kiosks, where one of them not only cash cards accepted. Easy access to walk on both beaches. If you want to venture has a beach access trail from top to bottom where beach has a beautiful view of the sunset. Loved

  • I went for the first time in the year 2013, where we camped with a trailer, in a place where I don't remember because the owners were known to my mother-in-law. A place where you can, camping and or rent a place to stay. The place offers, parking, kitchen with refrigerators and freezer to share, anyway. The beach of Pineheira is very good, very quiet and calm. Good to be with the family, with children and even among friends. The market and the town centre are not far from the beach. For me and my family we like to quiet places, ends up being better than the guard.

  • Beach good for those who like to play around in the water, no big waves. Provides access to hiking trails and has a thin sand. Many activities are offered as banana boat rides and kayaking.

  • 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
