Description

This photo is taken farther back towards the land portion of Praia Santa Monica. This beach, also known as Praia Curralinho is one of ten beaches on the island of Boa Vista. The beach itself is seldom used by people due to underpopulation and the desert area. Instead, the beach is a protected area for turtles laying their eggs. At the time of David Baxter's visit, it was a beach of some 12 miles in a virtual pristine condition.
