Camboinha Beach, Joao Pessoa

4.3
#5 of 35 in Parks in Joao Pessoa
With clear turquoise water, bright white sand, and tall palm trees, Camboinha Beach is a picturesque escape from the hectic capital, João Pessoa, and perfect for taking long, relaxing strolls. Protected by reefs, you can swim in the warm ocean, or bathe in the naturally formed pools, completely undisturbed. From Camboinha Beach, venture out to Ilha de Areia Vermelha, a red crown of sand that reveals itself at low tide. Boats bring temporary restaurants to this sandbar, and you can enjoy some tasty food while admiring the coral reef from close range. Back on the beach, while you have several good restaurants to choose from, try the famed crab in coconut milk at Mão Branca.

    This is a lovely place, especially now that you can't bring food and drink like the olden times, destroying the environment. Well worth getting to know. Not to be missed

Where to stay in Joao Pessoa

As you'd expect, most of the accommodations in Joao Pessoa crowd around the eastern coastline, jostling for the best position to catch a glimpse of the morning sun. Of these areas, the beach neighborhoods of Cabo Branco Tambaú and Manaíra offer by far the best range of places to stay. In pleasant contrast to many of Brazil's other coastal cities, a restriction on high-rise buildings along the shorefront has helped the city retain its laid-back, natural feel. Consequently, most hotels are housed in smaller, unobtrusive buildings. You won't find a huge range of budget accommodations in the city, but if visiting in low season (March to November), you can bargain for as much as 40 percent off the regular price.
