Sand dunes border the pristine beach, which features blue lagoons, interesting rock formations, and stretches of gold sand. Protected against development since 1984, the scenery here inspired The Washington Post to rank it as one of the world's top ten beaches. Nearby attractions include a rustic fishing village and a dune from which you can watch the sun sinking into the ocean at sunset. Expect to travel a ways to get here, including 45 minutes off-road.

Where to stay in Jericoacoara

As part of a national park, building restrictions in Jericoacoara keep all new constructions within strict guidelines. As a result, the pousadas (guesthouses) here are squat and rustic, in keeping with the remote, paradisal charm of the place. Despite its isolation and small permanent population, Jericoacoara's tourism infrastructure has grown markedly in recent years, adding lots of pousadas to the main village. Ranging from luxury options with pools and other amenities, to simple rooms in humble abodes, you'll find accommodations to suit various budgets and tastes. Book in advance, especially for peak season (December to February).
