Ponta Negra Beach Manaus

Here is Ponta Negra Beach

Ponta Negra beach in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil is one of the most pristine, white beaches along the majestic Rio Negro river. Local residents spend their weekend unwinding here because it is very wide and the sand is amazingly soft. Although the north shore of the river has spectacularly clear waters, it is not the best place for swimming because it is directly over the level of the Amazon. To get to Porto Grande, you need to rent a raft, which costs around 2,200 Brazilian reais. There is an entrance fee of 600 reais.

These “water taxis” go down the Rio Negro river to the port, and will transport you about a kilometer (0.6 miles) up the river to a small boat port on the south side of the river. Porto Grande is the last starting point for those seeking adventure along the Amazon River. With fewer visitors these days and the beautiful bridges, jungle, and cultural sites of the upper Amazon as well as the famed indigenous tribes that live on its banks and below, the lower Amazon is regarded as the best place to see indigenous tribes in their natural surroundings.

As the longest stretch of tropical rainforest on Earth, it is also the best place to see the forest’s many species of monkeys. Firau Bend, Bahia-Guanajuato, Amazonas, Brazil Camellia Brook, Guarani Indians, Brazil.
