  • It is certainly not the only beach with kite surfers, but behind the beach there is a pond where you can certainly see many kite surfer.

  • Ponta Preta Beach follows Praia Santa Maria. The sea on the east coast is a bit wilder than in the south (Santa Maria) and less. Only sand as long as the eye reaches and pure peace! It's just great!
