Can not mis it when you are at ponta negra beach. Do not go there at night, it is not safe. In front of the Morro de Careca you can take some beautiful pictures. It is not allowed to climb the Morro de careca.

This beach where the sun rises has calm waters and good structure of tents. It is possible also at the tip near the hill of Careca the practice of stand up paddle and canoeing. Easy access and with several hotels in the locality.

This was one of my favorite beaches I have ever swam at. If there were fewer people and a road wasn't right alongside, I would give it 5 stars. However, it was otherwise perfect in that the waves were not too strong, making it good...More
