Ponta Negra Beach
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.
The Amazon Theatre (Portuguese: Teatro Amazonas) was a great find, as I didn't even notice this when I was looking at the city on the internet before I left the UK.
It was huge too, and probably the most well maintained building we saw here. It was completed after 15 years of work, in 1892, and was build during the peak of the rubber industries success here.
If visiting these places is your thing, and you like to see them on the inside, then you can. It wasn't my thing at the time, and so I could only bother to take a pic of the outside.
On the plus side for us, it was in a great area of town (not the cleanest or neatest), and we had a really good day around here.

Ponta Negra - Upscale part of Manaus
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.
