“Not the time to visit”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

As Brasil prepares for the World Cup of soccer, this is another location now under renovation. It is an otherwise entertaining and beautiful place to visit;so make enquiries before planning to go there soon.

This is one of the best places in Manaus, There is a fresh water beach with an amazing view of the Rio Negro and a nice place to walk and relax.

“Too far away for visitors”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The part that has been reconstructed is really nice but it is not worth the time or taxi cost to go there. It is the rich residential part of Manaus, huge modern buildings but it simply looks like any other nice residencial area.

“Best avoided...dangerous and crowded”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Ponta Negra Beach is a man-made swimming location and tourist attraction, but the planning, in my opinion, seems to have gone terribly wrong. During a recent visit, a local told me about 12 drownings in just a few months since it has been opened, and news articles confirmed that some unexplained drownings have occurred. If you are reading this review, you should verify this information yourself with a reputable news source to get an accurate account on the safety of swimming here. During my last visit to the beach, swimming was prohibited.

The beach is located at the end of a long street separated by a concrete barrier, so if you choose to venture out there and encounter traffic, turning around is nearly impossible, especially on weekends.

I've seen very few parking places or trash cans there, resulting in traffic jams and littered streets. Not my idea of a day at the beach.
