An island beach, located 23 miles off the coast of Manaus from the Ponta Negra area, the Praia da Lua is a popular haunt for anyone who’s looking to get away from the city. Accessible only by water, there are ferries that will take you to and from the beach; you could also rent a speedboat and ride it there.
This ‘moon beach’ as it’s called because of its crescent shape is a sight for sore eyes with white sands and water reminiscent of the English tea. Rightly dubbed as the best beach of Manaus, the Praia da Lua is an excellent place to take a dip or just sit back and bask in the sun with some beer.
There are plenty of eateries along the beach, but they are rather pricey; if you’re on a budget, pack a picnic lunch. Open all around the year, there’s no surprise why the Praia da Lua is one of the most visited places in Manaus.
- While entry to the beach is free, you will have to pay for the boat ride that takes you there and brings you back.
- It’s about 10 minutes from the Marina Davi.
- The roundtrip boat ride should cost you around R$10 per person.
- Take buses 011, 012, or 120 and ask for the free bus (Especial) that will take you to the marina.
- Parque Nautico Ponta Negra
- Karu Grill
- Casa do Pao de Queijo
