Location

Preá

The fish­ing vil­lage of Preá is loca­tion 1km down­wind (west) of Beach House Prea. Rel­a­tive­ly new to tourism, Preá vil­lage has retained its typ­i­cal “nordes­ti­no” char­ac­ter, where life for the locals is pure and sim­ple and in close con­tact with nature. Many locals still make their liv­ing from fish­ing and agri­cul­ture, and most morn­ings you may watch the fish­er­men bring­ing in their haul with nets and boats in much the same way they have been doing for 100 years. In recent years the beach has become more pop­u­lar due to its close prox­im­i­ty to Jeri­coa­coara and con­sis­tent kitesurf­ing con­di­tions, result­ing in an ever-growing vari­ety of accom­mo­da­tion and restaurants.

For nightlife options, Jeri­coa­coara is still the biggest and best, locat­ed 12km away and acces­si­ble by beach bug­gy. Jeri­coa­coara is host to numer­ous small, yet excel­lent, restau­rants, bars and cafes where can­dlelit din­ners and live music can be enjoyed. At sun­set, dozens of stands are set up on the beach offer­ing cock­tails pre­pared with trop­i­cal fruits.

Each evening, vis­i­tors climb the enor­mous dune at the ocean’s edge to watch one of the most spec­tac­u­lar sun­sets on Brazil’s coast, then after sun­set, experts in Capoeira, the tra­di­tion­al Brazil­ian mar­tial art, put on a show and invite spec­ta­tors to join in. Jeri also has a vibrant nightlife with bars and clubs open until the small hours.

Kitesurfing

The stats speak for them­selves. Prea has the most con­sis­tent wind in the North East of Brazil with an aver­age annu­al wind­speed of 26 knots the entire sea­son from June to Feb­ru­ary. On an aver­age day the wind will blow from around mid­day until sun­set. The wind direc­tion is cross on-shore mak­ing it safe for all lev­els and there are kilo­me­tres of beach­es and a good prox­im­i­ty to lagoons and oth­er kitespots. Prea is the per­fect train­ing ground due to the long hours avail­able to kite in and the space and free­dom that the loca­tion pro­vides (we are upwind from the kite-schools). Addi­tion­al­ly, white sand, trop­i­cal tem­per­a­tures and no obsta­cles or rocks on the beach makes it safe for both begin­ners and advanced kiters to improve, with­out fear of injury.

Kitesurfing lesson on the beach

Instruc­tors can give lessons from the house and there are numer­ous down­winder options that can be arranged for the more experienced:

For flat water
…head up to Bar­rin­ha by bug­gy on a low tide and kite back to the house
…or take the down­wind jour­ney to the lagoon at Tata­ju­ba (40km)

For wave riders
…catch the wind-swell on high tide with a down­wind to just before the Jeri head­land (8km)
