    Sand Spít of Barra Grande - A Roadway!

    Traffic on Barra Grande Sand Spit at Low Tide

    To the north of Maragogi´s Beach Front on the Barra Grande Beach which is about five kilometers from the city, a long sand spit is uncovered at low tide. This is especially worth seeing on the days around the full and the new moon. The beach buggies go way out into the lagoon. But, those that are walking can go even further, but soon find that the reef at that point is unobtainable. Still there are great places to swim and if you are lucky you´ll find some large shells. It is a great place to take pictures too.

    If you don´t have wheels, take one of the "combies", the small jittnys that go up the coastal highway and get off at Barra Grande and walk down through the village to the beach. Who knows, you might see me there!!

    Find Your Own Place on the Reef

    Two times a month, the reefs off Maragogi become very special. This is at the low tides of the full and new moons. The day before and the day after comprise the best three day window in each case. There are places that you can walk out to the beach IF you have tennis or beach shoes with good rubber soles. We walk out from the Antunes beach, it is a bit longer, but the tropical pools are large, deep and spectacular. Just check with the fishermen and watch your time, start out at least 45 minutes before low tide and come back to the beach no later than 45 minutes after the tide has changed if you are walking. Of course, you can find fishermen with sailing jangadas and have a real adventure of several hours!
