Guarda do Embaú

Guarda do Embaú is a small fishing village just 30 minutes south of Floripa, Brasil. Rio da Madre can be crossed by a short swim or in a canoe to miles of sandy beaches. The river meets the ocean and a rocky point to create perfect waves for surfing. Pedra do Urubu, a rock with circling vultures, sits high above green hillside with great trails.
