  • Compensates for the rise of 160 steps, because the view is WONDERFUL, the top you see the village of Mandacaru in 360 degrees, beyond the view of the sea and the River, and the pictures are beautiful.

  • The Lighthouse is located in the village of Mandacarú and is maintained by the Navy of Brazil. Is well maintained and has a lovely view upstairs. The ascent can be tiring for those with no physical preparation mainly because of the heat. As part of a tour with other attractions, is worth the visit.

  • Cosy village, with a privileged location. The view of the Lighthouse is beautiful, you can see the River, the sea and the meeting. In the heat of the Maranhão, vale very worth a quick stop in one of the local ice cream and try typical flavors of the region, such as: bacuri, murici and tapioca.

  • Beautiful view from the river and the sea... Just stunning.
  • Old place, but the view is very nice
  • Legal
  • On rainy days the lighthouse vision is impaired. A tip is to run as soon as I get to avoid queues: there are a limited number of people who can climb.

  • Beautiful. It pays to climb the 160 steps up top. Have to compete for a photo. Watch ice cream near the entrance to the Lighthouse we were informed that some people wrong.

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.
