Beach
Wind surfers will enjoy Ponta do Santo Cristo Beach, since its strong and constant wind is perfect for windsurfing and kite surfing, as will collectors, since sea treasures such as shells are found along the beach. You can also sit coconut water and juice from the beach bar and enjoy the sunsets this beach is famous for. There is a legend about the beach’s name: the legend says that in 1501, after a colonial expedition arrived and placed its mark at Marco beach, they group sailed to a protruding point where they noticed a group of indigenous people waving. The explorers decided to approach this group since they appeared civilized. However, they were taken by surprise when the indigenous group captured, killed and ate their priest in full view of the other members for the expedition who were, by then, trying to escape. Sometime later, the crucifix of the priest was found giving the name to the place – Ponta do Santo Cristo.

  • Excellent to go with small children at low tide because form natural pools. How is deserted, not only has to spend a lot of time structure.

  • Beautiful beach great look but don't have customer service structure. It's a shame because it doesn't get for a long time there.

  • I was on the edge of santo cristo to watch the sunset and my expectations were exceeded. The beach has a wide strip of sand and is beautiful. Definitely, one of the sunset most beautiful I've ever seen.
