Pedra Furada, Jericoacoara

4.1
The Arched Rock, Pedra Furada has become a symbol of Jericoacoara and is a collection of rock shelters used for thousands of years by human populations. The rock formations provide evidence that people may have entered this hemisphere 21,000–40,000 years ago, as opposed to previous beliefs that stated humans from the New World arrived no longer than 15,000 years ago. Controversy surrounding whether the formation was formed naturally by ecological methods or by man-made early settlers is something that you can determine for yourself when you visit.

Walking east from town along the shore you'll first pass Malhada Beach, which is a smaller beach popular with surfers. At low tide, most of the beach is walkable, otherwise take the higher path along Serrote hill. The walk takes about 2 hours in total. If you're traveling with children, consider renting a dune buggy, then you'll have to walk about 1.5 km (0.9 mi) along the beach at low tide. If you prefer, you can hire a guide service with knowledge of high and low tides to bring you safely to the rock.

  • We went caminando(dos adultos) from Beach jeri, does not have major difficulties, you have to bring water and CAP, or what you want to protect from the Sun, a time there, is taking muuchas photos, and if you dare to take a bath, there are to take into account that there are rocks.

  • We visited on a late afternoon of cart, the descent and ascent from the top to the sea is very difficult and can get hurt, the stone itself is pretty

  • Postcard of fate, just not impressive. Not worth even the 30 minutes it takes to reach the site.

  • Recommend. Walk along the beach towards the rock. If you don't mind a lot of people you might consider going in the afternoon to see the sunset. Take a flash light with you because the walk is about 1.5h one way, so the way back you'll walk in the dark. Otherwise I would suggest to go earlier in the morning to make your way back before noon to avoid the hot sun.
  • If you’re in Jeri, you have to go see this, but time your visit to the low tide so you have time to get a good photo. You will have to wait because it’s full of tourists who aren’t always the most conscientious. Don’t do what I did—you could trek here along the beach, but it’s far and treacherous, having to cross many rock formations along the way. Take the trail that leads there from above the hill.
  • Um passeio que dura uns minutinhos andando, outros descendo o morro, mais que vale a pena.
  • It is just a rock. Crowded
  • Top.
