This is a great chance to the sandbording, you can rent either a board to do ir standing or to do it sitting. The price is only R$10. The place is big and lets you enjoy the sport greatly!

Great beach for surfing and also for walking and running, because there is lots of space and good waves (depending weather - check for optimum surfing conditions). Also has high Dunes nearby, where you can do sand boarding, lots of fun fort kids.

If you are fan of sand board and enjoy going up and down the dunes, you will love it! The view of the sea and the lake from the top of the dunes is fantastic too.
