Mulheres de areia (Portuguese pronunciation: [muˈʎɛɾiʒ dʒ aˈɾej.ɐ], "Sand Women") is a Brazilian telenovela produced by the Rede Globo and aired from 1 February 1993 through 25 September 1993, in 203 episodes. It was written by Ivani Ribeiro with the contribution of Solange Castro Neves and directed by Wolf Maya, Ignácio Coqueiro, Andre Schultz and Carlos Magalhães. It is a remake of the soap opera of the same name that aired on the now-defunct Rede Tupi from 1973 to 1974, when Eva Wilma portrayed the two main characters of the plot (the twins Ruth and Rachel).


Young Marcos Assunção goes to the fictional city of Pontal D' Areia to assist in the businesses of the Assunção family. The young man meets Ruth, daughter of a poor fisherman, and falls in love with her, but he ends up involved with Rachel, the twin sister of Ruth. The sisters are identical, but of opposite personalities. While Ruth truly loves the young man, Rachel desires his position and riches. She also has a lover, Wanderley, an outlaw.

Tonho da Lua, best friend of Ruth, is mentally disturbed and famous for creating sculptures of women with the sand of the beach. Rachel must also face Virgílio Assunção, Marcos's father, who doesn't accept her relationship with his son. Virgílo, an unscrupulous man, is the vice-mayor and owner of the biggest hotel in the city. His goal is to turn Pontal D' Areia into a tourist center, but he must deal with the mayor of the city, the Green politician Breno. The population of the city is divided. Breno has one ally, Tônia, a local trader. To demoralize Breno, Virgílio puts scarecrows in the beaches, symbolizing the mayor who scares the tourists.

Meanwhile, Ruth suffers in silence over the marriage of Rachel, knowing that Marcos is only interested in Rachel. The plot has a twist when Rachel is believed dead and Ruth assumes her personality to be with the man she loves. But Rachel did not die and she returns to claim her own life.
