Praia da Lua

Praia da Lua information

Lonely Planet review

Manaus’s best beach has fine white sand and tea-colored water, and can be coupled with a visit to the Museu do Seringal for a nice city escape. Like all river beaches, Lua is biggest when the water is low (September to December). Beach shacks serve fish and beer at tables set up along the water. The big drawback: no toilets.

Catch a boat to Praia da Lua (R$5, 10 minutes) from Marina Davi, just past Ponta Negra. Take bus 011, 012, or 120 (R$2.40, 20 minutes) to the turnaround and wait for the free ‘Especial’ bus to the marina.
