Duna do Por do Sol, Jericoacoara

(4.7/5 based on 7,000+ reviews on the web)
The constant wind of the Duna do Por do Sol makes the small fishing village and National Park of Jericoacoara one of the best places in the world for windsurfing and sailing. As you head out wearing comfortable shoes across the high dunes, you'll notice lagoons created by the rainwater and shaped by the constant winds. A fun, adventurous way to see the dunes and much of the National Park is to rent a dune buggy that can take you to more of the fresh water lagoons than any other transportation vehicle.

If you venture further into the dunes, you'll find larger lagoons and small rivers running as far as the eye can see in valleys formed between the dunes peaks. The bottom of the pools is soft and sandy, which makes them excellent for wading, swimming, and water sports. As the sun begins to set--a sunset that most remark is the most beautiful sunset in all of Brazil--you'll notice people sliding down the dunes seated on objects that resemble snow sleds, called ski-bunda, or "butt-skiing." Make Duna do Por do Sol a centerpiece of your Jericoacoara vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jericoacoara trip builder.

  • No luck to get the sky completely clear, but it's always worth it. The visual top of the dune is cool. Every day I was there (31/01, 01/01, 02/01 and 03/01). You can't go in Jeri and don't go through there.

  • Perfect for watching the sunset in the waters of the beach of Jeri. It's a habit and location of tourists climb the dune when the Sun is setting.
