Farol do Serrote, Jericoacoara

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.

  • Worth the walk to the lighthouse and the view from up there, the landscape! But the lighthouse itself, no big deal!

  • I performed the ascent by the Hill saw to meet the trail to the Pedra Furada, the trail is exhausting, so go prepared with light clothes and appropriate shoes and comfortable. Arriving at the lighthouse you have a privileged view of the village, ends up being an award the rise. I highly recommend for its beautiful scenery.

  • I enjoyed the walk on the Hill saw the view is beautiful, to see Jeri off, the dunes, the sunrise and the sunset at sea. It's worth it.
