Hello folks! Ready to study more? On today’s Dica we will find out what is a Canga in Brazil!

What is a Canga

Canga is a kind of sarong and it’s very popular in Brazilian beaches due to its facility to dry off and its weight. They are cheap. They cost between 10 and 50 reais and you can easily find them while walking around the beach or with street vendors.

How to use a Canga

Brazilians often use cangas to dry their bodies after swimming, because cangas don’t hold onto sand like a towel does. By the way, do not use a towel in the beach. It’s a crime!!

They can also be used to cover a surface area while you have a great view of the sea.
