Distance from the center: 29 km.
Nearby beaches: Barra da Lagoa, Mole, Joaquina.
Neighborhood: Rio Vermelho.

The longest beach on the Island, also known as Praia Grande, it consists of 7,5 km of soft, light colored sands, almost untouched by mankind. Being part of Parque Florestal do Rio Vermelho, a reservation of approximately 400,000m2 consisting of predominantly pine forests and completely devoid of any construction. The landscape becomes even more distinct with the dunes, dividing the low vegetation and the ocean.
The ocean here is similar to Mole in that it is open to the sea and the depth increases rapidly resulting in 'dumping' waves. The water also tends to be quite cool due to contact with the Falkand's Current.

The reduced number of people in the area facilitates the occurrence of break-ins and car theft. Be doubly attentive especially during mid and low season.

Do Not Miss:
- Morro das Aranhas Trail, located on the far north of Moçambique beach. You can get to Santinho beach using this path.
