Malhada Beach, Jericoacoara

4.2
#4 of 14 in Outdoors in Jericoacoara
Beach Nature / Park
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. See Malhada Beach and all Jericoacoara has to offer by arranging your trip with our Jericoacoara trip itinerary builder.

  • Almost deserted Beach, with fantastic visual! Access, depending on where it comes, can become complicated because of the tide!!! There is no structure of bars, take plenty of water!!!

  • It is located to the side of Jeri. The beach is cute and much more quiet than the Center. It has waves with strength. It is special to practice kitesurf

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).
