Praia da Lua

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

Named after its crescent-shaped beach, Praia da Lua is on the Río Negro, and is located 10 minutes away from Ponta Negra in Manaus. Avoid this beach on the weekends when it is overcrowded and noisy. During the week you should expect warm waters, and is one of the few beaches open year-round. Don't expect any frills here, just wooden tables and benches to eat your food at, and small restaurants selling pricey food and drinks from tents. Catch boats from the Marina do David

at the end of Coronel Teixeira Avenue in Ponta Negra near the Tropical Hotel and expect to pay R$10 round-trip, per person. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: sunsets; swimming; people-watching.
