Malhada Beach, Jericoacoara

(4.1/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Anywhere you visit in Jericoacoara, have your charm. The beach of Jericoacoara is sensational, white sand full of rocks, and shells. When this low tide it forms natural pools between the stones. If you're lucky you can share the pool with fish. The malhada beach is also way to pedra furada. A breathtaking adventure, both with the beauty of the place as the walk. The hills the stones the new landscapes arise is rewarding. Super indico.

  • Gets in the way of the pedra furada, worth climbing the hills and take a picture from top to bottom because the visual is too beautiful! the tide is low and always passing people going to pedra furada, has some very simple stalls and worth it enjoy the crystal-clear sea.

  • Deserted Beach, very quiet, many stones and rocks. Clear and fine sand. Sea kind of hectic, but worth it.
