There will be a black gate, just open it and there will be three gates to your right; the second one is the gate to our house, and it has a bell for people who wants to book accomodation; the third gate, is the entrance gate to our Surf Camp.

Some 30 kms (20 miles) past the exit to Garopaba, you will pass the highway patrol station from this point onwards, you will drive past two petrol stations to your left, and some 8 kms ( 5 miles) north, if you are lucky you will see the sign on your right. Pay alot of attention because it will be the first exit to you right, and the road sign will be literally on the corner of the exit and it is usually hidden by the bushes. If driving at night, watch out for the only illuminated lamp post to your right after the petrol stations mentioned previously. As soon as you drive out of the highway, you will be on a cobble stone road; continue driving down this cobble stone road and shortly after, there will be a right bend then a left bend, at this point you will be in Morretes, 3 kms (2 miles) down the road, to your right you will find the entrance to Guarda do Embau.
