Praia Santa Monica, Boa Vista

4.8
#4 of 6 in Parks in Boa Vista
Sink your feet in powdery golden sand and enjoy the spacious, crowd-free ambience at Praia Santa Monica. Stretching over 22 km (13.5 mi), the beach attracts many tourists--particularly surfers--because of its untouched nature and challenging ocean waves. Despite the sparse vegetation, the protected area also represents an important breeding ground for turtles and birds, so expect to stumble upon eggshells every once in a while. Take extra care when swimming or surfing, because the Atlantic's currents can get very strong. Put Praia Santa Monica into our Boa Vista sightseeing planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Boa Vista.

  • An empty deserted big long wide beautiful beach! With the Sun straight ahead and towering waves that are bad. Bus ride for hours in the desert. It keeps the beach deserted and untouched. Wow!

  • More great and especially more beautiful beach of the island of Boavista. It is worth a visit! The sand and amazing panoramic views.

  • A surprise. A beach bar with live sea fish for the grill. Local cuisine and lots of sympathy.

  • Gorgeous beach, warm water. Unfortunately big companies are developing the area which is ruining the untouched beauty of the beach.
  • Most beautiful beach on Boa Vista Island. In early morning time or late afternoon there is no one. U ll be there alone on most amazing beach. Waves re really high and powerful. So be careful. The beach is full of crabs.
  • Stunning beach with no one in site. Big chain hotels have now got planning permission to build here so if you wish to see it in it's original beauty hurry before it's gone forever.
  • The most beautiful beach of the world!
  • One of the most beautiful places in the world.
