Portinho Lagoon, Parnaiba
(1.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • -Nice tree combed. Where do we go from here? *-Visit the Lagoa do Portinho. -Cool, a pond ... * She just dried up. What do you mean? Let's visit a pond that dried up? *-Yes. But a dried-up pond is no longer a pond ... * okay. We will visit the place where stood a pond that dried up. -Oh, okay. But for what? *-Because it was very important. People get off the beach and into the pond to make a freshwater bath before going home. But for that I'd be interested to know that? * Look, come on and you will understand! -Oh, okay! (I can't imagine ...) Yes, it was a pond with a hotel and restaurant annex. Has piers that lead the Bank to nothing! From what I understand, the hotel lived aquatic pond activities such as banana boating, boat trips, water sports and such that are gone! Not to mention that in the way we are faced with a HUGE dune that disrupts the entire road. Inusitadíssimo! The posts covered by the sand. Very cool! Regretted almost given up.

  • At first we didn't want to visit a dry pond, the Lagoa do Portinho was once a beautiful place, however, due to drought there is no more water. It turns out that on the highway that leads to the place formed a big dune and suddenly you're faced with this vision in the middle of the asphalt. I've never seen anything similar. The duna covers power poles. Worth checking out in addition to serve as a warning about the conscious use of water.
