This has to be hands down the most amazing beach. It was empty when I went with just a few of us (all on a quad-bike excursion). Your feet melt into the sand like standing on marshmallow (although i have not stood on many marshmallows if i am completely honest). The sea is quite choppy but its fun to mess around in.
Boa Vista is very baron so the only way I know you would go to this beach is on an excursion like we did but if your into that kind of thing definitely do it - it was the most fun :)

Santa Monica Beach in Boa Vista is one of the most stunning beaches I've ever been on. There is nothing for miles so don't expect bars or anything like that. It's just pure white sand and turquoise sea. You can't go far in the water as it's really rough but you can dip your toes in, don't let that put you off.

Far from everything and with difficult access(local taxi drivers o the circuit often), there is one of the best beaches I have ever seen, white sands kissed by a light blue sea, and almost no one around, it deserves the visit for sure.

This is an empty beach for you alone. Its 15 km long and you can drive with you car direct along the waterfront. The beach is 200 meters wide and there is no trace of human living anywhere

Albeit the beach of Santa Monica is currently accessible only with organised tours or by 4WD it is definitely one of Boa Vista highlights and its hidden gem. 18 kilometres of unspoiled white sandy beach and balmy blue water where you can enjoy only its calm nature beauty, waves and sun. One of the best beaches I have ever been to.

But hurry with your visit as Melia hotel chain is supposed to start a construction of large resort there from 2017 (they are already building the road leading there) and then this place turns into mainstream.

very long and wide beach on Boa Vista, considered one of the most beautiful, because of the views and varied landscape

we arrived there with a quad tour, stayed for ca 1 hr. In the meantime I saw also some 4x4 trips, so you can use this alternative to get there. As it was far away from anything, there were a lot of birds and huuuge crabs that were behaving like fighters, ready to face a human! waves were too strong to try swimming but the shells indicated that also sea animals are bigger than in any other place. Totally worth going!

We went there in a quad bike tour and it's an ideal way to see the place. We did some paddling, but no swimming as the waves were huge. Basically, it's just white/gold sandunes in a beautiful bay. There are no trees, buildings, or many people and this is what makes this place so special and unique. I hope that they will keep preserving it the way it is, so untouched and beautiful. If you go with the quad bikes you can experience driving though dunes, and on the beach! Absolutely stunning! Just on the north of this beach, there is a small one which has a "turtle/no bike" sign, so it seems that the turtles love it too!
