Barra Velha Beach, Soure

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.

  • The Old Bar is the beach closer to the center of Soure, the most important city of the island of Marajó. Access is by private car or taxi, because there is no public transport there. The location is beautiful and full of bars and beach huts. In addition to the beach can be visited the mangue, over a wooden bridge which is also very interesting.

  • Whenever I give a woman in this paradisiacal Beach and usually stay in the tent of manoel paidegua we always offer great quality food.

  • Beautiful beach somewhat deserted, I went on weekday only had one open tent. The biggest problem is transport. She is less than 3 km from the municipality of Soure and the taxis charge us 60 reais to take and get and said it was 7, so we went with the taxi because the Sun was too hot and back foot. I found an abuse this value
