All kinds of beach sports--, from bodyboarding and kayaking, to beach volleyball and soccer--are practiced at Praia do Campeche although there is plenty of space for those who prefer their beach trips to be a little more relaxing. The beach is so long, in fact, that locals claim French writer Antoine de St. Exupéry used to land his plane here in the thirties.
