Welcome to Guarda do Embaú
Famous for its excellent left that breaks at the mouth of the river, Guarda do Embaú often makes the list of Brazil’s best surfing beaches. But it's much more than that. Where the river meets the sea at this laid-back, bohemian surf village, it creates one of southern Brazil's most postcard-perfect settings: surfers and sun worshippers wading back and forth across the beautiful Rio da Madre between town and Guarda's gorgeous sun-toasted sands. It's an excellent destination for wave riders and other bohemian types.
