The wide, fine sandy beaches of north-east Brazil stretch out to the horizon and are considered to be the most beautiful beaches to be found anywhere in the country. Our Kite Centre is only about 200 m from the water’s edge and offers you an ideal spot extending over an area of several square kilometres, with lots of space to take advantage of the cross-onshore wind. The spot is quite changeable thanks to the tides – new, very different conditions arise twice a day:
At low tide, you’ll find a large, shallow lagoon with flat water. The vast lagoon has something for every kiter, whatever their level. When you start, you can adjust your kite and board from a standing position. Fewer wind waves make kiting more comfortable and offer ideal conditions for freestylers. Advanced and pro kitesurfers can also enjoy 500 m of mirror-smooth water to windward at the mouth of the Rio Pirangi.
At high tide, when the water in the lagoon is somewhat deeper and wavier, you’ll be in your element, whether you’re a wave enthusiast or a novice.
The current and the wind form the lagoon differently every year and it can happen that at low tide there is very little water in the lagoon. In this case KBC Parajuru organises a shuttle service to a spot further upwind.

Valber’s unforgettable churrascos would surely tempt even a vegetarian. A churrasco, or barbecue, is a centrepiece of Brazilian cuisine and therefore a must for every holidaymaker. A variety of meats are grilled on skewers 1 m in length and served with typical Brazilian side dishes such as farofa, macaxeira (cassava) and beijão. A unique culinary experience, and one not to be missed!
We also recommend a visit to the beach resort Canoa Quebrada: during the day, you can browse around the many small shops and enjoy a visit to Canoa’s renowned sand beach. In the evenings, the streets of Canoa are transformed into a lively, chaotic party mecca with a host of bars and clubs. Then, after midnight the revellers head towards the beach and the Freedom Bar, where they dance till the wee hours to the sound of reggae.
If you visit us at the end of October, get ready for a ghostly Halloween party, bring your scariest costume and make terrible faces.Ask for your holiday offer

Between June and January, reliable wind conditions are above 70%. During these eight months, the trade winds create ideal kiting conditions with wind speeds between 15 and 25 knots, and it almost never rains. You can expect the best conditions between August and November. The wind comes from the east/south-east and blows cross-onshore. Kite sizes between 7 sqm and 12 sqm will work well. The standard kite size is 9; use 12 for the early and late season. Air temperatures are around 30°C. The sea is warm – board shorts and Lycra are all you’ll need for kitesurfing here. However, don’t forget to use high-quality, waterproof sun protection as well.
At low tide, the beach is very wide and the lagoon is shallow. The water is extremely smooth. This is optimal for practising in our shallow area and with a constant cross-onshore wind. When you start, you can adjust your kite and board from a standing position. With so much room in the water and on the beach, practising as well as launching and landing your kite are simple and safe. These are also ideal conditions for freestylers.
Wave enthusiasts will find everything they’re looking for at high tide, and novices can make their first attempts too.
