Jericoacoara

Why visit Jericoacoara?

Jericoacoara, on the nothwest coast, became a national park in 2002 and the conditions here, with strong trade winds for around half the year, shallow warm waters and miles of sandy coast, are ideal for these sports. Jeri is also famous for huge sand dunes, offering great scope for sandboarding and buggy rides, and striking rock formations. It’s hard to imagine that until the late 20th century this was still a little known fishing village which only gained electricity in 1998!

  • Try out your windsurfing and kitesurfing skills. Jicoca Lake is a good place to hone your skills before braving the ocean waters
  • Climb Duna do Por do Sol for a perfect view of the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean
  • Laze in a hammock or on a lounger on the sandy beach as you soak up some sun
  • Join a guided hike along the beach to Pedra Furada, a famous arched rock formation
  • Go sandboarding and take beach buggy rides over the dunes
  • Join the surfers at Malhada beach
  • Explore the sand covered street of Jeri village, shop for souvenirs and sample different cuisines
  • Go swimming in freshwater lagoons among the sand dunes
  • Enjoy the post sunset parties at local bars, many with live musice
  • Choice of guesthouses, pousadas and hotels
