Portinho Lagoon, Parnaiba

#6 of 7 in Nature in State of Piaui
With the surrounding white dunes contrasting with the dark blue water of the lagoon, Portinho Lagoon is a stunning, natural attraction east of Parnaíba. On the lagoon, you can kayak, jet ski, and take rides on banana boats, just be careful as there are piranhas lurking in its depths. Several easygoing bars and restaurants serve delicious regional cuisine, which you can enjoy to the accompaniment of live forró music. Our Parnaiba itinerary planner makes visiting Portinho Lagoon and other Parnaiba attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Remember that there are 10 years ago was the biggest and best attraction in the region. Today's start to their own devices, the dunes have landed all the bars close and hardly the movement of tourists in the region, completely abandoned, saved by a last restaurant still remains in place. In 10 years, the best and most beautiful attraction to an abandoned lot.

    The Lagoa do Portinho is, in fact, a broad river at that location, forming a large lake of running water. Picturesque and pleasant place to visit. Has a restaurant that serves regional food, especially the soft-shell crab.

Where to stay in Parnaiba

Where the city nestles up to the banks of the river, find charming pousadas (guesthouses) offering a range of facilities and excellent views. Elsewhere in the town, simple hotels and pousadas dominate, with prices dropping markedly in traditionally residential areas. Hostels provide good options for more budget-conscious travelers, while rental apartments represent a good choice for those staying in the city for a little longer, giving an extra degree of independence to go out and explore the town and surrounding areas.
