Barra Velha Beach, Soure

(260+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • Personally, I don't understand why you have so many good reviews about this place. That ugly place, filled with a bag that slides. Transport too expensive cost me 50 reais to take on this beach and fishing. Horror, not worth the space out of Bethlehem to go to this place. I don't know the other cities but Soure, I won't ever again. Warning: Beware of people that opportunists who have, when someone insists on taking you somewhere, don't go. After we had already gotten gives Beach checked prices on a motorcycle taxi to there, I found much cheaper.

  • Interesting for a walk. Catwalk on the mangrove ecosystem observation. Presence of bars and loud music but with possibility to walk somewhere quieter. Parking with guard duty.

  • The beach is not far gives city of Soure. Is easy to access. We like the place, but we don't like water, due to the time when I visited the place, be the rainy season in Pará. The water is very brackish, freshwater mixes with saltwater. We prefer to have lunch in the town of Soure.
