Water

Type:
Shallow, Flat, Chop
Hazards:
Ships
Quality:
Clean
Best Tide:
High tide

When the tide is low, Lacem has almost no water, so you should prefer going to the Cabanas Island (you can cross the channel by foot). If the tide is up, Lacem it's a great place to try out new things. The only problem is some vegetation that comes with the rivers that can sometimes hurt your feet. If you want you can go to the ocean directly on the board. If you like waves, would prefer the ocean (but the waves are not so often).

Beach

Type:
Sand
Size:
Small
Hazards:
Concrete
Beach Users:
None

There's not so much space in Lacem, but once you get in the water, it all changes. At the side of the Island you have all the space you could want. No concrete in either cases. Getting there is not easy.
