Ponta d'Areia Beach, Sao Luis
(1.3/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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 is very beautiful and the tidal variation is very interesting to observe, but the beach is very dirty. On the day I visited there was even a vulture eating a carrion in the sand off the numerous bottles and plastics in the sand. Anyway the post is something cool to visit in the area.

  • It is a great beach to relax and eat different is big enough to change it. The most important thing to go is to take into account the altitude of the seas. In tides is not accessible to go

  • It's a different Beach, the tide indicates the point you enter the sea and get out of it. She climbs the night and down the 10:00 in the morning and is a large sandy beach. It has a very beautiful headland.
