Bonita and Azul lakes, Barreirinhas
Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
Catching sight of these lagoons for the first time will take your breath away. The vast 300 sq km (116 sq mi) “Brazilian Sahara” is dotted with crystalline pools of fresh rainwater, ranging from turquoise blue to emerald green. The water is warm and, while home to many species of fish, turtles and clams, swimming in the pools is encouraged. There are no paths to Bonita and Azul lakes through the constantly shifting dunes, and as some can reach heights of 40 m (131 ft), you would be wise to hire a four-wheel-drive vehicle or join a tour. Make sure you take water with you, as there are no shops in this ecological paradise. Make Bonita and Azul lakes part of your personalized Barreirinhas itinerary using our Barreirinhas holiday planner.

The perfect order! both are worth, even though when I went (August 2016) was little water in the Blue Lagoon, which already looked rather green. The beautiful lagoon tour is really impressive, much better than the previous. It is the place where you will have the best view of the Park because you have to climb a dune and I recommend watching the sunset from there!show original
