Manaus has two sandy beaches on the outskirts of the city. The Praia da Ponta Negra, which lies upstream of the city’s pollution, is the most popular and the most heavily developed. It is backed by high-rise flats and lined with open-air restaurants, bars and areas for beach volleyball and football. Nightlife here is lively, especially at weekends. However, on most nights at least one of the bars (such as O Laranjinha) will have Boi Bumba dance shows. Many of the better hotels, including the Tropical, are situated here. To get here take any bus marked ‘Ponta Negra’ (eg No 120) from the local bus station next to the cathedral. The beach can also be reached on the Tropical’s shuttle bus .
The city’s other beach, Praia Amarelinho, in the Educandos neighbourhood, is a little too close to the centre to avoid pollution and is not recommended.
