Camboinha Beach, Joao Pessoa

(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Camboinha Beach and other attractions to your Joao Pessoa trip itinerary using our Joao Pessoa vacation trip planner.

  • Recommend too much, especially if you have with low tide! Great beach to do kayaking or SUP-stand up paddle, which has available for rental! For very clean, warm, quiet, very good to bath children, must make the trip to red sand!
