Surfcamp e Chale Gel e Susanne, is owned by a Brazilian / Swedish surfing couple.
The surf camp is situated in the surfer's paradise and fisherman's village of Guarda do Embau which is located within the National Park of Serra do Tabuleiro. This park is situated approximately 35 miles (50 kilometers) south of the capital island of Santa Catarina state, Florianopolis. Our strong part of the business is the camping area for approximately 120 tents. (For people with their own tents we charge approximately US$ 4 per person). In the last five years Guarda do Embau has become a major destination for tourists from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Although still virtually unknown outside the surfing community, it is getting an increasing number of visitors from as far a field as Australia and Europe.
Along with some tents to rent we have a self contained studio flat fitted with ceiling fan, a fully fitted kitchen with full size fridge, and a hot shower (suitable for four people). It has two single beds and we can arrange if necessary two extra mattresses double or single to put on the floor.
