  • This River is excellent for those who want to take a tour by boat and is also very good for bathing. You can cross the river by ferry.

  • Recommend only for those who are walking a 3 blocks (unfortunately in a very poor village and abandoned) and that is very much in order to climb the many flights of stairs. If not, don't go. Who doesn't like to walk, climb, get bored, will find boring, all this coupled with the heat and stuffiness inside the lighthouse. Already those who enjoy walking and sea-related things, geography, history or is curious and check everything, it is worthwhile. I like and I went. I love lighthouses. Are beautiful. Just to see outside would. The view is very beautiful and you have a good idea of the surroundings. The lighthouse, to the extent possible, is very well taken care of by the Navy. Worth it if you like. By the river there is a bar with the most unusual cachaças I've ever seen.

  • The parade in maracatu to climb the lighthouse looks like something new, but it's not. The view of its 160 steps legitimizes the title of the Brazil of paradise in natural beauties. Woods, dunes, River and sea.

  • Beautiful view from the river and the sea... Just stunning.
  • Old place, but the view is very nice
  • Legal
  • The boat ride to get it's relaxing. Incredible view of the village, the wind farm, meeting the river sea laziness! Well maintained and cared for despite the time. You have to be careful up there because there is no safety rail. The town is still rudimentary but it has the basics.

  • Nothing too special not to be seen, but something caught my eye, there was a detachment of concrete at the bottom on the ground where the tourists enjoying the scenery. The wall at the top is very low there is a risk of accidents with children since at the top the winds are strong. The town is pretty humble with craft shops.

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.
