Full description
Explore the lovely beaches of Joao Pessoa on Brazil’s northern atlantic coast. The 10-hour tour from Joao Pessoa begins with a scenic trip to the beaches of Tambaú, Manaíra and Bessa. Visit the Intermares Sea Turtle Nesting Area, and learn about this endangered species. Continue to the port town of Cabedelo, famous for the stunning Camboinha and Formosa beaches. Explore the colonial fortress of Santa Catarina, strategically positioned as the city’s primary defense against the Dutch. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture the magnificent views of the Atlantic ocean and beaches from the top of the fortress. Before your return back to your hotel, you will have the opportunity to go swimming and enjoy some delicious freshly caught seafood dishes from the local restaurants. Experience the beautiful sunset on Jacare Beach, set to the sound of Ravel’s Bolero. To make this an extra special trip, upgrade to a private tour and get truly personalized service. You can also buy an optional catamaran ride on the Rio Paraíba (which features lively cangaceiros teaching you how to dance our forró with a beautiful violin version of the artist Belle Soares, besides the illustrious presence of the artist Jurandy do Saxophone). You will still have time for a visit to the local craftsmanship, during a brief walk along the boardwalk. Take your time to taste local foods and get beautiful souvenirs!
