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.

Beach erosion takes away from the experience here as the only way to get shade is to rent a umbrella and lounge from the many vendors. While very scenic, expect an overload of vendors hawking food, clothing and other items.
