Starting with the reception I had at Hostel Rosamar in Praia do Rosa, a well-structured hostel distinguished by the small details: great service, comfortable mattresses, individual light on the beds, bedside table also on the beds, Gabriel (tthe dog), many bathrooms and all clean, good structure for preparing food and a great living area.

Enjoying free time from tours

When I arrived I caught the end of the cold front with two rainy days, I took the opportunity to advance my projects. I just took a quick stop at the beach.


I had already gone to Praia do Rosa, I hadn’t stayed there, so this time I had a totally different view.

I spent a night alone in the 4-bedroom, then three girls arrived from Rio do Sul, a city 7 hours away by car.

They represent well what I saw there, especially on the Friday holiday weekend. They are always excited, enjoying the Rosa Norte during the day, in an atmosphere of a lot of flirting, and going to parties at night.

Sun rising at Praia do Rosa

One of the girls woke up by accident while coming back from a party, so I took it as a chance to see the sun rising over the beach.

The First Surfer of Praia do Rosa

The sunrise at Praia do Rosa was not so cool. It appeared from behind some mountains and it was taking too long to light up the beach so I continued walking.

Sun rising behind the rocks

I tried to go around the rocks that are in some farms there. I got to a point where I couldn’t get through because of the very large rocks, so I went back and headed towards Praia do Luz.

Morning Meditation in the Paz do Rosa Beach

I even think this beach is named for that, the sun rises right in front of it.

I stopped on top of the mountain, inside the farms with the cattle grazing in front of the sea. I took some photos of Praia do Luz and came back.

I had breakfast at the hostel and went after my project, looking for fishermen to get more involved with gastronomy and understand a little more about life in the region.


I stopped by the fishmonger, as it was full, the lady, one of the owners, didn’t receive me very well, but she told me the name of Sebastião who helped me later. So I continued walking, wearing pants and with a briefcase under my arm, in addition to the camera.

The beautiful Ouvidor Beach, where my trail started

I arrived at Praia do Ouvidor (Ouvidor Beach), very beautiful with very tall trees on the edge.

Trail to Praia Vermelha

Then I went back to take the trail to Praia Vermelha, before I had run away from the main trail twice, in one I had a very nice view of the region at the top of the mountain, also along with the cattle, in the other I arrived at a very small beach, with just two couples enjoying the tranquility of the region.

Praia Vermelha is also very beautiful with a wooden house in the middle and a giant stone at one end. As in most beaches there, there were plenty of surfers enjoying the cold and rough sea.

Back to Praia Vermelha Trail

I returned to the trail, which is very quiet and demarcated, but with many ups and downs, luckily it was hitting some cold winds, as I understood they were southerly, and helped to cool off a little of the hot sun from day.

Back to Praia do Rosa

Walking, walking, I arrived at Praia do Rosa, along Praia do Rosa Norte, from above the crowd of people was more visible in a small stretch of the huge beach, where there was music and simpler kiosks selling beer. It is in this part that the preparations for the parties that take place at night begin.

Highlight for the agglomerate of people in Rosa Norte

Regarding gastronomy within my budget, I didn’t have any big surprises, I ate a lot of fish in some restaurants there. And what was most surprising was a very good and filled pastry (pastel) fried in cotton oil that I didn’t even know existed.

From the photos you can know a little about the region, but only by being there to really understand it. MeetPraia do Rosa!

And when you go, tell me why Praia do Rosa is not forgettable.
