4.7

Despite the vastness of the sands, there are other landscapes to be seen here, including mangrove swamps and freshwater lakes. Monkeys and a wide range of birdlife can also be seen in the dunes. This desert atmosphere is best explored via 4x4 vehicle or quad bike, and there are several tour companies who will take you directly to the area’s best spots.

  • Make this tour first, why after knowing the lagoons and sand dunes of the great sheets, gets a little dull ... Worth it for the boat trip, especially if you're lucky enough to get a legal guide and tell the history of the city. The beach that is hot and can ride a quad bike, rent for 1 hour to walk from end to end. There's no infrastructure (kiosks, bathroom or vendors), has some restaurants that are on the waterfront, a 10-minute walk away from the beach for those who collect shells, uses for decoration or craft, this is the beach that I found the most beautiful and largest shells

  • One of the stops of the tour of the Preguiças River. Interesting site, but nothing compared to the National Park of Sheets

  • Although far from Barreirinhas, worth facing the River to arrive on broomsticks. The food is relatively expensive. The most exciting part is the tricycle ride on the beach and the dunes.

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.
