#4 of 9 in Parks in Ilha do Sal
Swim and relax at Ponta Preta, a large, quiet stretch of golden sands. Well-known among water sports professionals, the headland's 3-4 m (10-13 ft) waves offer excellent windsurfing. A handful of restaurants and huts perched atop the dunes serve food and drinks, while rock-studded sections of the beach offer good picnicking and viewing spots. Horseback riding is also available.
