Duna do Por do Sol, Jericoacoara

4.7
#1 of 185 in Parks in State of Ceara
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."

  • Only place that doesn't pay anything to enjoy what the a beautiful view to the sea with the fantastic sunset the 17 hs.

  • Watch the sunset over the sea is wonderful, and the dune has an extra plus, simply it is walking, approaching the sunset and how in a procession the people go up and sits there, enjoy.

  • On the 17 hours begins the procession of tourists from the beach of jeri to the dunes to see the sunset. You might get better or worse days to see the sunset, but it is always a wonderful spectacle. We liked a lot not only that the turn also has its charm as the sky becomes more reddish and arriving at the entrance of the beach there are street stalls offering cocktails and juices.
