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.

  • few people, white sand sea, a local eatery ... paradise. only down fall always pulls a bit I get in + (which is nice if it's very hot, but disturbing if the temperatures are optimal still nn)

  • Beautiful beach that stretches for kilometres. Not really ideal to go swimming because the water was very cold and there were big waves because of gusts of wind (stay in February). Perfect for those who love and practice kite surfing. Precisely, we attended a stage of the Championship of the world in mid-February.
