Malhada Beach, Jericoacoara

4.2
#4 of 14 in Outdoors in Jericoacoara
A small, lesser-known beach frequented by surfers, Malhada Beach is a place of rugged beauty. Peppered with colored rocks, coconut trees provide shade for those relaxing on the sand. At low tide, hire a local guide to take you to Pedra Furada, a naturally occurring stone arch offering beautiful panoramas in every direction. If you are lucky enough to find yourself at Malhada Beach between June 15th and July 30th, you can catch the sun setting right in the middle of the arch. Malhada Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Jericoacoara Edition.

  • the malhada beach is the best beach of Jeri, because the Fort of Jeri are freshwater ponds. This beach is very close to the hotels, you can go on foot and when low tide form pools. a delight!

  • The Malhada beach is way to walk to Pedra Furada. Beautiful, but a little deserted. Worth a trip up there.

  • It's not a good beach for sunbathers, only for windsurfing. Rough seas, many stones, constant wind and without any tent. As is beach side of Jeri, worth knowing to take pictures only, but is a walking only.

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).
