Farol do Serrote, Jericoacoara

Lighthouse
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.

  • It was a lovely surprise. We missed the way back of the pedra furada, and we stopped at the lighthouse. You can see the whole village of Jeri, the dunes of the way of the village and the beach of PREA. A 360 view of Jeri. Worth it if you have leg and disposition. Best sunset the sunset Dune.

  • When is the pedra furada make a visit to the lighthouse which is on the side, and has a wonderful view of the whole place to reflect and look, really pretty.

  • The view from the top of the Hill of the saw's beautiful, but the Lighthouse is very ugly. By strategically located lighthouse was more impressive.
