Barreirinhas

4.1
National Parks · Bodies of Water · Lighthouses
Most visitors consider Barreirinhas little more than a convenient base for exploring the nearby national park, yet the town's sandy beaches and picturesque riverside setting make it a rewarding destination in and of itself. Many local tour operators provide guided excursions to the area's famed sand dunes, a hugely popular addition to practically every Barreirinhas itinerary. The shifting dunes shelter a varied birdlife, concentrated around several freshwater lakes. If the journey across the dunes seems a bit exhausting, create a more relaxing Barreirinhas vacation by exploring the walkable town's restaurants and shops, or take a guided boat tour down the Preguica River. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Barreirinhas and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Barreirinhas

Barreirinhas serves mainly as a jumping off point for visiting the nearby national park, so the town's accommodation options remain relatively limited and fairly expensive. Guesthouses near the town center are probably your best bet, the majority offering clean but very basic rooms with few frills. You won't find any luxurious hotels here, but you can choose between several mid-range establishments providing air-conditioned rooms with parking and tree-shaded outdoor areas.
