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.

  • I enjoyed the beach, there are places to practice aquatic sports, great for swimming because the waves are weaker in some regions, enabling a peaceful bath even for those who can't swim well. Going up a little on the beach can find the beautiful and hidden pits and caves. Ahh! Can't miss the beautiful sunset from there.

  • Beautiful little Beach!! The people focuses well in the Centre, right at the entrance. The singing, the Malhada Beach, is much more peaceful in terms of clutter. The view is wonderful.

  • Smaller, more reserved Beach in Jeri, is very beautiful and quiet. The however is that does not support structure (tents, bars), so we chose not to stay there. But it was worth the visit and yielded beautiful pictures.
