Ponta Negra Beach, a lively beach dotted by numerous convenient tourist facilities, has long been a beloved hang-out spot for both locals and passing visitors. The sand is lined with huts, locally called "barracas," selling food and drinks to beachgoers throughout the day, with several staying open late into the night. You can swim, dive, and snorkel in these calm waters, or spend the day browsing the many nearby shops, bars, clubs, and restaurants. Located at the extreme southern end of the beach is the famous Morro do Careca (Bald Hill), a large dune and an iconic landmark of the city. To the north of the beach is the Via Costeira (Coastal Way), a long road connecting this site with several other popular beaches along the coast.

At low tide you can walk past the Bald Hill amid the rocks, where you make some natural pools, giving to see some little fishes and take beautiful pictures. We stayed at the Old Five, a bar with quiet music, attentive staff, with bathroom, shower, sun lounger and parasol and safety to leave personal items and enjoy the sea.
