Sao Miguel do Gostoso
To give you a better idea of the spots that I discovered 7 years ago, Sao Miguel do Gostoso is a pretty fishing village that hosted on their coasts some kitesurfing schools. The charm of this singular place is the friendliness of the locals people who never stop to make you smile, but also the ability to evacuate a wink stress and strains of everyday life. This small village is located in the Nordeste of Brazil on the coast of Rio Grande 110 km from the capital Natal, and at 1h15 from Natal airport (NAT). The huge bay allows beginners to progress with confidence, while the reef sand with perfect waves breaking at about 600 meters from the coast offers a true playground for intermediate riders and confirmed. The wind direction is E SE, side-off shore starboard tack (wind coming from the right) blowing on average between 18 and 25 knots. Thes kites most commonly used range from 7m to 11m, and the temperature is at 28 °!
Mostly desert and exotic bay with a side wind, onshore and well flat water at low tide south of Sao Miguel.
Praia do Marco
This magical spot has a side/onshore direction and is located above Sao Miguel do Gostoso, with a huge playground! A small local restaurant will whet your palate with a mixture of typical dishes of Brazil and freshly caught fish!
Here is the place of the Nordeste to visit! It’s here that you will find one of the best spot in the world with hidden lagoons in the middle of nowhere, wave spot at the entrance of the village ..
Here is an overview of the atmosphere that you can expect: HERE
Brazil has a reciprocal visa system, so if your home country requires Brazilian nationals to secure a visa, then you will need one to enter Brazil. At the time of writing, American, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand citizens need visas, but citizens of the UK, France, Ireland and most other EU countries as well as South Africa do not. Check with the Brazilian embassy or consulate in your home country.
There are also no specific vaccination requirements, however like all tropical destinations we would recommend you bring with you some form of mosquito repellant and if you are particularly sensitive to mosquito bites, so light longer trousers for the evenings.
Brazil’s currency is the real (often written R$); the plural is reais. One real is made up of 100 centavos.
1R$ is equivalent to approximately 0.35€/$0.45US / £0.30.
We recommend changing your money BEFORE travelling as this allows you to do so in the security of your own country with no stress or uncompetitive rates of having to do so at arrival in the airport.
