This beach will vary from season to season because of the rise and fall of the river. There is a luxury hotel here but it is falling into a bit of decay.

It's hard to describe how weird arriving at Ponta Negra beach is - it's an ocean side beach with everything that you'd expect but there's land on the other side of the bay... wait... it's not a bay, it's not the sea, it's the Rio...More
