Beach
Exactly opposite Praia do Campeche sits Campeche Island, and the waves created as the sea pushes past that landmass attract surfers form all over the world. 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.

  • Sea more agitated, but clean water and white sands. Good for those with older children and couples

  • Very cute and great to spend time with the family. The site is equipped with complete infrastructure.

  • We went to the beach of campeche to meet the island of Campeche, but the sea was very choppy because of the South wind (that's what they were talking about there) so we ended up just taking a swim at the beach even. There are no kiosks on the beach, just two restaurants at the entrance that we do not use. The beach is beautiful, with very cold water.. RS.
