The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

Praia da Macumba, where we are located, is known for being the world's best longboarding spot. The beach break waves are long and full, which allows a series of maneuvers. The best time of the year for surfing in Rio de Janeiro is from May to August when there are more consistent waves.

The lodge

A warm, fun and casual environment. We are located in Rio de Janeiro, Recreio dos Bandeirantes, home to one of the best surf spots in the world for longboard and beginner surfers, the Praia da Macumba. Come experience our “Carioca Style”.

Our accommodations are waiting for you and your group, no matter how big or small. There are 9 rooms divided into 2 suites, three private and 4 shared rooms. We work with comfort and tranquility, so you can take that nap after the beach and sleep well at night.

We have an equipped kitchen with microwave, blender, cooktop, refrigerator and everything you need to spend some comfortable and relaxing days. Not a surf day? Enjoy our swimming pool, sauna, functional gym, living room with coworking space, TV and video game.


Our bar is known for its modern design and healthy dishes that nourish and still ensure energy to enjoy the day. On beach nights, there's nothing better than enjoying a fruit-based drink. Our special drinks combined with the background music it's certain of lots of fun.

Hikes and adventures

Praia da Macumba is a true surfer's paradise, and we noticed that many surfers did not have a place with the structure to catch a wave, store their board, then take a shower, go to work, or appreciate with family and friends who enjoy the surfing lifestyle. A trip to Australia inspired me and I adapted to Brazil the structures we saw in the clubs there. Our place is ideal for those looking for comfort, exclusivity and great waves!
