Pedra Furada, Jericoacoara

3.6
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.

  • I visited with bug. Left at a point on the edge and we did 30 minutes of walking. The problem that the sand is very cute and takes a lot of breath. The look is fantastic. 1:30 track option exists but the problem is the rise of the stone. Simply take a sinister defibrillator for time to come. The stone is fantastic. If you have empty in the early hours of the day you just sit back and enjoy the weather and nature has in store for us.

  • It is a hole in the stone, literally. Knowing this, has a beautiful view, typical of tourist spot! It is worth visiting and, if you're not afraid of long walks with rocks, worth going to the beach at low tide.

  • Maybe if you go to see the sunset in June and July could be worth worth ... other than that it's too far to walk down there ... even you coming up with bug or quad take water for QA walks of is great and it is taking the picture and go!

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).
