Ponta Negra is one of the local urban beaches of Lakes Region, state of Rio de Janeiro... It's a little known place. Maricá is a very extensive town, with a small population. In the Amaral Peixoto highway, Lake Region direction, pass de portal entrance of Maricá (red and blue, corossing the highway, very strange...rsss). After a few km, note the "PONTA NEGRA" entrance, near a gas establishment. Right side....

This is a pretty fun spot, if you get to meet the locals, ask them to take you to the secret spots behind the dunes, there are some break-points back there and some cool reefs...
Girls, bars, party, all kinds of fun.. sometimes the beach is flat, but you can play some soccer with the natives who are extremely friendly...
I think this is a great spot, it is not the best, but it is fun, specially if you are a beginner.. the coolest thing is that you are close to many other beaches that you can find yourself same pretty good waves (Pipa, Artistas, Tabatinga)

Ponta Negra - RJ - Do not confuse Ponta Negra located in Maricá, Rio de Janeiro State with Ponta Negra in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte State. Ponta Negra in Natal is a beach with low wave. Ponta Negra in Maricá is a beach with high waves.
The distance between both beaches is about 3000 Km (2000 miles).
