The beach of Mundau depends principally on fishing, tourism and handicraft. The region is rich with natural attractions such as coral reefs, mangrove swamps, sand dunes, seasonal lakes and of course the river Mundau. The beach is a peninsula with a rocky estuary of River Mundau. The dunes are ideal for sand sports and provide an amazing backdrop at sunsets. Mundau in the native 'tupi' language means large lake.
