That Bonito has the most wonderful destinations in Brazil, we already know. That the beautiful state of Mato Grosso do Sul is not bathed by any ocean either, right? But did you know that this does not mean that there are no beaches there?
Mato Grosso do Sul has a beach, yes, it is in Bonito/MS and it is of unparalleled beauty.
Balneário Praia da Figueira is a vast freshwater beach, blue, crystal clear, and warm all year round, right in the heart of the Pantanal plain. Its sand is white, almost like sugar, and the lagoon has an extension of no less than 60,000 square meters.
Here, the fish of the region's fauna swim side by side with the bathers, and the animals that live in the very green and preserved riparian forest can also be seen by the visitors, especially in the branches of the centennial fig tree that gives its name to this resort.
This excursion is ideal for those who want to leave aside the hustle and bustle of everyday life to relax in the middle of nature, and its warm water makes the environment suitable for those who are traveling with children on family vacations.
On the other hand, for those who are tired of tranquility and want an adventure to feel that adrenaline rush, more radical activities are offered, such as zip-lining, kayaking, and stand-up paddle.
For those who are already in their senior years, the tour has special prices.
The structure of Praia da Figueira is full of amenities: a hammock area, changing room with a hot shower, wi-fi, lifeguards, and kiosks in the water.
This is why the Praia da Figueira is so special, and the perfect choice for travelers of all styles and ages, and best of all, you can experience this wonder for very little money!

Praia da Figueira is a gigantic freshwater lagoon with white sand, surrounded by riparian forest, and the natural habitat of fish such as pacus and piraputangas.

The centennial fig tree that gives the spa its name has a canopy of an unbelievable 1,000 m². It is this tree that shades the hammock and attracts various animals from the rich fauna of Mato Grosso do Sul.
The waters of Praia da Figueira are warm all year round. This is because its bathing area is a lagoon rather than a river.
It is a paradise for those who can and those who can't swim, because the lagoon has very shallow parts and deeper parts, and absolutely no current.
