Another favourite with the global Kiteboarding community, Barra Grande is one of the most popular yet tranquil spots along the Rota das Emoções (Route of Emotions). Kiting conditions are very similar to Atins in terms of seasonalities and wind conditions. There are multiple spots, low tide is ideal to surf in front of the main beach, at high tide riders can chose to move around a lagoon for shelter.
Barra makes a great stop-over for the trip from Jericoacoara to Atins. The village has a very informative tourism website for orientation.
