Ponta do Seixas Beach, Joao Pessoa

3.8
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.

  • Beautiful place in the middle of the sea full of corals, where the boat Park, and you can get off the boat and walk or even swim with great security, in the boat is offered drinks and junk foods, all for very cheap prices.

  • the view is beautiful, made up for the visit, but it seemed to me with little infrastructure, at least in the piece that I was. Did not offer chairs or sunshades to rent. I believe it is ideal for those who want to go to a tranquil beach

  • Tranquil beach, both with regard to our how much Diners and locals. Great for bathing.

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.
