Arrombado means “assault” in Portuguese, representing the way the waves roll on its beach.
This village is very close to important cities like Luis Correia or Parnaíba, but today it remains an atypically quiet spot, where tourism does not seem to happen or develop.
All this makes it a sanctuary for sea turtles, who come to lay every year during the low season.
It is very close to the Parnaíba Delta, the largest in all the Americas, one of the most incredible places in all of Brazil. To discover it, it will have to be by boat, night or day. Two completely different scenery that will show all the flora and fauna this rich ecosystem hides.
Barra Grande is at the same distance on the other side, a very cosy village with a different atmosphere that conquers anyone from his very first visit.
It is the best wave spot in the region, and because of that every year it hosts a stage of the regional strapless competition. Here one can play with the waves non-stop, and following the rhythm of the moon, the conditions will only get better.
A few kilometres away, Barra Grande happens to be one of Brazil’s classic kitesurf spot, with shallower and calmer waters.
In the way back to Arrombado, there will be a mandatory stop in Macapá, a delta with flat conditions and incredible scenery.
