South America’s First Lesbian Surf Camp Rides Into Brazil

A Week of Waves, Women and Wellbeing Await in Praia do Rosa

Riding the wave of a successful mixed LGBT surf camp last fall, Brazil Ecojourneys has announced plans to organize South America’s first lesbian surf camp from May 9 - 16, 2015 at Praia do Rosa Bay, Brazil. The May camp, which is open to LGBT women as well as any interested women allies, friends and family, will include five days of on-the-water instruction, yoga classes and an overnight exploration of the state capital, Florianópolis.

“In Florianopolis, we will have a welcome night at a local lesbian bar,” noted Marla Dalla Chiesa, Director of Brazil Ecojourneys. “And, in Rosa we are planning two dinners in restaurants run by lesbian chefs. It is an interesting fact that this small beach resort has so many restaurants run by lesbian chefs.”

Located in the southern state of Santa Catarina, stunning Praia do Rosa Bay has long attracted surfers from around the globe because of its ideal climate for making perfect waves. Over the past few decades the region has also become a hotspot for LGBT travelers with its appealing mix of stylishly low-key accommodations, notable eateries and generally relaxed atmosphere.

Brazil Ecojourneys camps will accommodate approximately 15 surfers, which means that although registration officially ends six weeks before camp starts, space is limited and fills up quickly. For more information on the May 2015 lesbian surf camp itinerary or to book your trip, visit
