Historic Walking Area Beach
Take a ferryboat across the Paraiba River to the Santa Catarina Fort ruins for photos and wade in the water at Porto de Cabedelo. A blanket of blue sky covers the port environs with a sapphire blue. Underneath this sky you'll visit a rustic yellow church situated near the water, or one of the many bars scattered throughout the area. However, the most popular spot is the expanse of sandy beach that bakes in the hot afternoon sun. See Porto de Cabedelo and all Joao Pessoa has to offer by arranging your trip with our Joao Pessoa travel itinerary maker.

  • Make a visit to the fortress of Santa Cantarina-16TH-century situated in this region is the only thing worth! This fortress does not count with the support of the Government and if you don't have the support of tourists should have the tragic end that had the other fortress that stood on the opposite bank of the river. Collapsed and took by land centuries of our history Dutch-French-Portuguese.

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.
