Farol do Serrote, Jericoacoara
(3.1/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Step off the beaten track with a visit to Farol do Serrote, a lighthouse standing as the region’s symbol of remoteness and isolation from the world of screeching car horns and electronic billboards. Not just a remnant of the bygone days, this lighthouse is still in operation. Due to extreme shallowness of these waters, vessels often need careful guidance as they approach the shore. To preserve the area’s timeless quality, artificial street illumination is still forbidden by local law, which makes the lighthouse a necessary beacon of light for seafarers and villagers. You can stop by to watch the sunset from here, or stay late to see boats returning home after long days on the sea.

  • is not a beacon tradicional.el access is duro.solo sea view justifies the sacrifice in days of hard soles

  • The Lighthouse is on the trail of Pedra Furada. Worth going there to view Jeri from the top, the look is beautiful, but the lighthouse itself has nothing more.

  • If you visit this lighthouse, be sure you will see one of the best view of Jericoacoara area. But to reach the top, you will face a huge dune.
