Praia do Japao, Aquiraz

#3 of 8 in Beaches in Aquiraz
Strikingly blue sea laps Praia do Japao, where you can sit under a thatched roof for a drink of coconut water and some just-caught seafood. This quiet beach is mostly frequented by families with children, who love to splash around the warm water while their parents picnic on the smooth sand. At low tide the sea forms several small pools near the beach. These large seawater puddles teem with fish for several hours each day, and you can catch them using nothing but your hands. This area is peaceful yet close to town and the state’s biggest water park. Stop by to enjoy some undisturbed family time in a calm place of blue seas and lush green landscape.

  • I love the beach, despite the Sea being agitated. Strong waves, and I can't be alone in children. Other than that, beach clean, warm water.

  • Great place to go with the family. Super quiet, the tents are the best: Beach Place, Dany tent and Blond tent. Affordable price and well served dishes.
