long white sandy beach perfect to launch and landing your kite.
waves: perfect from 3 feet to 14 feet!! ( 1mtr to 4mtrs) but you will usually sail with 6 feet waves (2mtrs). the first 150/200mtrs are really flat perfect for freestyle specially betwen the sea and the laggon. no obstacles!!!!
You have 150mtrs to freestyle and then pure wave sailing. you also have a laggon that its perfect for freestyle, you can be sailing at the sea, and then pass to the laggon, cause its conected just like a rivermouth.
Also great for Surfing and a lot of options like horse ridding, and excursions like going to water falls(jump from a 36 feet / 11mtrs fall)and a lot of party.

Beach closed? - At http://www.kite.com.br/picos.shtml I found this Information about Ibiraquera: "Informe-se antes de viajar, pois quando está na época da pesca da tainha as praias e Lagoa ficam interditadas." At which time of the year do they close the beach? What about Aug. and Sept. I would be happy if someone could answer my question.
