Jacarape Beach, Joao Pessoa

3.6
At sunset Jacarape Beach is packed with visitors waiting to see the spectacle of light and water playing against each other. Musicians, arriving by boat at just the right moment, play the popular Ravel’s Bolero as the final rays of reddish sunshine sink into the sea. Arrive early to grab a good seat on the warm sand. After this show you can take a romantic walk to the pier, stopping by one of many food and drink stalls along the way for a quick meal. Renowned local grape wine is sold by many vendors. You can also choose to visit a nearby trendy restaurant, for a more relaxed atmosphere suited for families or groups travelling together.

  • The sunset and the magnificent attraction at this location but the beauty is lost for some boats stay in the middle of the river surrounding the saxophonist and covering what should be the biggest spectacle the structure mounted on the pier well-behaved tourists but I get what I saw but if 10 years ago simplicity of saxophonist in a rowboat and he alone is the master of the show the sunset has things that modernity does not help.

  • A nice place to view the sunset and Natalie of sax, where later he plays Ravel's bolero on alternate days. A place very visited by tourists, with songs and craft fairs.

  • It's not the first time I go there. All very organized, all well sorted. An interesting spectacle to watch the sunset at the sound of Ravel's Bolero. Many shops for tourists. A good program

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.
