This place is right next to Tropical Hotel, and one of the upscale parts of town. Its the best place to sit down with a beer in the evenings/nights, enjoy the boi dances performed in the street - side cafe .... while watching the Rio Negro (the black river) flow idly by.
The Manauaras (residents of Manaus) too come here with their families to enjoy a pleasent evening walk.
Ponta Negra Beach Leisure Center is 13 Kilometers from downtown. This area was the village of the "Manao" Indians. There is a modern and huge amphitheater on the bank of the Negro river, where activities take place regularly. Also is the most popular beach in Manaus.
This is not your typical beach or a very desirable one but has plenty of nightlife jus a good piece from the city!
