The sea has usually strong currents and waves, does not feel safe. However, the sand is soft and pleasant to walk on along the beach.

It's a beautiful beach but not well taking cared. You see trash all over the streets and at night you have to be aware of pick pockets. The beach is crowded. It's worth to go and stay for a few days

Excellent beach for a nice long run, except at high tide, but for hours a day the sand is packed and super comfortable to walk or run. The water is clean and with easy waves, which makes this beach also a great place for a family swim. This is one of the best beaches at a city that I have... More

Quaint and relaxing. A lot of salesman of drinks and typical food around. A little complicated if u dont want a sun umbrella. Overall good!

The most affluent area of the city and also where most tourists stay. There is the Ponta Negra beach and most upscale hotels, shopping malls and restaurants. It used to be regarded as being significantly calmer and safer than other large cities but apparently it is not anymore. Just be careful when walking around.

There is plenty to do alone the beach. Restaurants, shops and fun stuff to do. The beach is about 2 miles long and very deep. It will get crowded on the weekends with people in small bathing suits, be ready if you are from the states.
