Ponta d'Areia Beach, Sao Luis

1.4
#7 of 13 in Beaches in Sao Luis
Located in a World Heritage city and known to be one of its most popular spots, Ponta d'Areia Beach is just 4 kilometers (2.5 mi) from the historic cobblestoned town center. Local favorite, coconut water, can be bought right on the sand. Grab a glass and enjoy a long sunset, or walk over to a nearby mangrove-surrounded lagoon for a late solitary swim. Not far from here is a vibrant area lined with fashionable bars and restaurants, where you can try this region’s own version of the guaraná soft drink. Called "Jesus" (nothing religious, just the inventor’s name), this beverage is pink and is rather sweeter than others of its kind.

  • The beach in a very nice neighborhood and modern SLZ. There is located the post, which is a good option for a walk in the late afternoon. There are toys for rent as well as food trucks.

  • A good place to meet and walk with family and friends, quiet and with bars next to the site.

  • In Ponta d'areia beach you'll find the sign "island of love". A good place to wander, alone, with family or friends. There is also a spur that enters the sea, where you can admire, in a sunny day, the sunset. In my case, when I visited the place it was cloudy, yet the ride was worth it.
