Appr. 250 Km more in the north from Jeri is Barra Grande located. We heard about this place from a couple of friends. “Nice lagoon and as much flat water and space as you like” they said.
So full with high-wrought expectations we arrived in Barra Grande.
“It´s amazing!” was actually my first impression.
We stayed at Stefan´s place. He opened his pousada and hostel a year ago. This year is his first season. In the last year he worked a lot at this place and it´s more than beautiful now.
Nearly everything is made from wood – you will not find any ugly furniture. Everything is so nice arranged that you easily relax.
The breakfast is more than nice with a lot of various food.
You can choose if you want to stay in one of the doubles or in the dorms.
We took the dorm and had only one other guy with us in the room. All in all the place was not crowded at all and obviously still kind of a “secret spot”. Check out the homepage: www.kitebarragrande.com The prices are more than fair.
100 Meter from the Pousada is your private bay. If you are able to get upwind you can kite here easily. The perfect time is at low tide. A big chest-deep pool accrues and you can improve and practice your latest tricks.
Appr. 2 Km more downwind ist the big lagoon (best time on high tide). Here you also find flat water for just cruising or practicing. After you session you can go upwind again (takes 20-30 Min) or you take a donkey ride. Don´t forget to order one before you go to the lagoon.
The lagoon is so far the best place i went here in Brazil. There is so much space and the wind blows nice and steady.
If you planning to visit Brazil, go to Barra Grande, because it´s a really nice place to kite or just relax.
Today we are going back to Jeri and stay there over Christmas and New Year.
