Rosa itself is a charming little city with local fishermen, mixed with lodgings and tourists which now visit this place. The beautiful, scenic beach is rustic and has a little more than 3 kilometers of length. The waves are ideal for practicing your surfing.
There are many activities you can do in Rosa: horseback tours, bike rentals, hiking to other beautiful beaches close by, stand-up-paddle boarding, snorkeling, kite-surf, wind-surf (perfect beach is the neighbour beach Luz and Barra da Ibiraquera), sand-boarding (also in the neighbourhood: Siriú), yoga classes, as well there are many bus tours offered to visit places around the area such as Guarda de Embaú, Garopaba, the waterfalls Encantada or even Florionópolis.
During the winter months the bay is visited by the whales (the ´baleia franca´- balaenidae) to get their young. They are a real spectacle of giants which you can observe from the shore.
