Although it is very popular with tourists, Ingleses maintains the traditions of its Azorean settlers. During the summer, it is the resort with the second largest concentration of Argentine tourists, second only to Canasvieiras. In winter, mullet fishing, religious festivals and folklore performances express the "manezinho" culture.
The beach is the main tourist spot in the area. Nearly five kilometers long, the narrow strip of sand is washed by the open sea with blue waters and moderate waves. In summer, the average water temperature is 22ºC guaranteeing a pleasant swim. The waves never get too large but there are days when they are good for surfing. In colder months, schools of fish swim up the coast in search of warmer waters than those in Rio Grande do Sul in order to spawn, making fishing the main activity of Ingleses' traditional residents.
