On the northeastern coast of Brazil, 185 miles from Fortaleza – Ceara state, a remote fishing village called Jericoacoara, translates into Paradise. “Jeri”, how it is popularly known, is considered one of the best destinations in the world. A mecca of windsurfing and kite-surfing, with crystal blue lagoons, optimal wind conditions, calm waters and amazing sand dunes.
Very laid back and extremely small, Jeri is entirely walkable and tourists find themselves on flip flops all day, everyday.
The must see highlights of Jericoacora are:
1- Duna do Por do Sol. This is a ritual for everyone visiting Jeri. Hords of people heading towards the dunes for the greatest sunset view.
2- Lagoa do Paraiso. Rest on the hammocks in the water where you can have your table set up and enjoy great food.
3- Jericoacoara Beach. Beautiful beach where people go for windsurfing, kite-surfing and just relaxing. The water is clear and the beach is wide, flat and fringed with giant sand dunes on one side.
4- Pedra Furada. The famous Arched Rock that became Jeri’s “trade mark”, is part of a collection of beautiful rock formations from thousands years.
