Portinho Lagoon, Parnaiba

1.3
#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. Make Portinho Lagoon a centerpiece of your Parnaiba vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Parnaiba travel app .

  • The lagoon is over, no more water. The neglect is visible, the access is covered by dunes and now it's hard to get there. Getting there, there's nothing to do. It's all over and is abandoned.

  • The lagoa do portinho dried up! There is only a little water, restaurants closed and there is an abandonment of the site. A dune this invandindo the track that gives you access to the site. Has been one of the most tourist places. but today not so much to do there.

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.
