Praia de Santa Bárbara (West)
Technically Santa Bárbara East is the same beach as Santa Bárbara West, but in reality they function as two different breaks. In the past, to get to the south end surfers would have to walk from the north as much as 500 meters but now the break has entree through the recently inaugurated resort, overlooking the waves. The sandbar can be completely different from one side to the other, and often is.
A fun and consistent wave, it works best with NW/N wind and N/NE/NW swell direction.
