“Foz do Lizandro is a well known surfing beach that not only caters to beginners and intermediates, but also to advanced surfers. On a good day you can get powerful tubes here, but most of the time this break is a forgiving beach break that is perfectly suitable for beginners and intermediates. There are multiple peaks with both lefts and rights, so it’s the kind of wave where you’ll surely find something that pleases you. It is very consistent surf spot. The beach hosts a boardwalk with many restaurants and is a great place to spend the day on the beach with the family as well.”
