Visitor Reviews of Matinhos
“I lived in Matinhos for some time and am going back there real soon for good. The information about this spot is not perfect, the closest break is really Praia(beach) Brava which is right beside it on the other side of the rocks, Caioba in further south not more than 3 km, walking distance(it is actually were people go for morning/evening run or walking, there's is loads of beach breaks going up north, the last one will be at Ilha do Mel (island) really a place to go and enjoy good surfing and beautiful visually.”
