Easy access (about 15 km from São Luís` downtown). Excellent kite services around. Great beach area that makes landing and launching really easy. Pay attention to vehicles around, although kite area for landing and launching is usually well defined. Practicers are always nice and ready to offer some help. Usually crowded on weekends, but not on weekdays.

São Luís is a colonial historic city. Although, it needs some improvement on its touristic infra-structure.
Pubs (there are several on Ponta d'Areia and on the historic part), restaurants (cabana do sol and maracangalha are the best ones).
