Barra Velha Beach, Soure

4.1
#2 of 11 in Beaches in Ilha do Marajo
Squeezed between mangrove forests and the ocean, Barra Velha Beach has a wild, almost savage beauty to it. Local folklore says that the native who discovered the beach was Master Tomás, a master builder and poet known in the region who wrote legends and poems about the location. Grab a cold beer and a bite to eat at one of the kiosks serving fresh fish and crab, then head off down the increasingly deserted beach to enjoy the company of nature.

    Beautiful, but beware of currents in tidal changes. 2 lifeguard came to see us asking to be careful before you even get into the water. Later we saw one person being taken and saved and in the morning the lifesavers disceram that one person drowned, so much attention. Do not become distracted by the beauty.

    Bucolic and picturesque Beach well. Landscape involving fishermen, fishing traps, selling local food huts (fish, turu, crab, steak, Buffalo). Beach not so flat. Not so positive point is that we do not accept credit cards, only cash.

    Beach friendly to go right after completing the small landscaped course en the mangrove. Possibility to stop in a barraqua drinking coconut water.
