Ponta do Seixas Beach, Joao Pessoa

3.8
#5 of 35 in Parks in Joao Pessoa
Beach Nature / Park
At the easternmost point of the Americas, you will find a white sandy beach studded with coconut trees and lapped by the warm, shallow ocean. Ponta do Seixas Beach is a stunning place, and one where you can enjoy some delicious barbecued fish washed down with a drink from the bar. Sitting atop the towering cliffs of Cabo Branco, the neighboring beach to the north, is a lighthouse, commemorating the natural landmark. At 40 m (131 ft) tall, its triangular design is inspired by the sword-like leaves of the sisal plant. At the top, you get a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding area, including one of the last buildings designed by famed Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. Our Joao Pessoa tourist route planner makes visiting Ponta do Seixas Beach and other Joao Pessoa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

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.
