Discover La plage de Jericoacoara Brazil

In northeastern Brazil, 174 miles north of Fortaleza, in the state of Ceará, Jericoacoara beach has regularly appeared on the Washington Post list of top ten best beaches in the world since 1994. Thanks to its remote location, "Jeri", as it is nicknamed, has remained preserved from the degradation that popularity often brings and has been part of a protected natural park since 2002. A long beach lined with coconut trees, a perfect climate, 26°C water all year round and a dune you can climb on to enjoy the most beautiful sunsets in the country: in short, a picture postcard beach away from mass tourism, where, come evening, the 'forro' is danced in the sandy streets. An oasis in the middle of the barren Sertao, Jericoacoara is also a renowned spot for practising windsurfing and kite-surfing. This former fishing village holds a few small pousadas, including the boutique hotel Chile Beach.
