    PANAQUATIRA - ONE SECRET OF SÃO LUIS

    Look how distant I am from the sand! HIGH TYDE

    Actually it belongs to another city close to the capital São Luis, he beach belongs to a small town called SÃO JOSÉ DO RIBAMAR, famous pilgrimage centre where all people go to the São Jose (Saint Joseph) do Ribamar Church.

    São José do Ribamar has two famous small villages such as Panaquatira and Raposa.

    Panaquatira is located 35 kilometers away from São Luis, it is a nice place for LONG WALKING FANS.

    And in this pictures you can sea when the tyde is coming and just notice how distance I am from the sand...unless if you a good swimmer, it is always prudent to watch carefully the comin of the tyde, otherwise you will not have enough arms to reach the sand.

    It is exactly like the tydes in France and Ingland, so if you know about the tydes in Europe, you will know exactly what I am talking about.

    Hahahahaha I know it will be very difficult for you to pronounce this name, it is an indian name probably coming fom the Tupinamba language.

    Panaquatira has a incredible tyde system, uring the low tyde you can walk over 2 kilometers through the sea, but watch out when the tyde will come back otherwise you will be in trouble!:)

    The beach is long and absolutely wild, when you walk you might come across with little pools great for swimming.

    On the sand you can rive your car and visit the great sea food tents..it is a life completely different from what you are used to see in your life!

    The landscape is absolutely magnificent, going to PANAQUATIRA will br for sure a plus in any trip to São Luis!
