MANGUINHOS, THE PERFECT BEACH FOR WINDSURFING
Its waters are calm, warm and clean, without waves at the shore, without ditches or currents, without rocks or forests over its 5 km of extension. An eastern wind parallel to the beach, which curves to become perpendicular to the wind and calmly embrace you if you need it. Manguinhos is a type of lagoon in the sea, one of the best places in the world to practice windsurfing.
For the experts you have all the natural conditions to exercise the limits of technique. The sailing from a minute from the beach offers fantastic conditions. That’s why Manguinhos is the place chosen by the best windsurfers in Brazil, Spain, New Zealand, Argentina, Mexico and Venezuela for the regular practices of their Olympic teams.
