Its waters are calm, warm and clean, without waves at the shore, without ditches or currents, without rocks or forests over its 5 km of extension. An eastern wind parallel to the beach, which curves to become perpendicular to the wind and calmly embrace you if you need it. Manguinhos is a type of lagoon in the sea, one of the best places in the world to practice windsurfing.
