Bessa Beach, Joao Pessoa

(4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
While Bessa Beach is a weekend hotspot, during the weekdays it is less crowded and takes on a more relaxed attitude. Some areas are rocky, while others sometimes are hit with strong waves, so take a stroll to find the best spot. Despite the coast's varied topography, the beach is wide and long enough that you’ll be able to find enough room to relax away from crowds and rough water. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Bessa Beach by using our Joao Pessoa tourist route planner.

  • I love the beach and beautiful visual of the sea, the view is beautiful as nearly all coastline, but for sure, there are beautiful beaches to visit. Water is gentle and ideal temperature, neither too hot nor too cold, but has many algae and nervous to be stepping on them until you reach a point that has the least amount of algae and can take a bath in peace. When I arrived, around 9:00 was quiet there, but as I went on a Sunday of Carnival, the beach was packed. I met a couple of natives who attend always the beach and said she is quite crowded by local people, but honestly, Tambaú is much better.

  • We were next to the Yacht Club and there you can do stand-up, doing aquatic tours or enjoy the beach in the sand which is also sensational: crystal clear water and warm!

  • Maybe the day I went was very full, each tent with a loud sound on, I tried to get away a little more of the excitement, it was a Sunday, but still believe that has much better beaches to meet.
