  • It is a beach paradise, little busy and with water that resembles the Caribbean. Good is to go at low tide, the dunes you can see corals reflected, so transparent that is water. Good for floor stand up or just enjoy the day.

  • I went to visit the beach without a lot of excitement and I was surprised. Sea of hot water, empty Beach in the middle of the high season, you can shower at home, some algae on the side, some small ripples, you still find some kiosks along the edge. I was in love, a place to chill out away from the euphoria of the summer in the Northeast.

  • Gorgeous quiet beach with amazing views of the sunset. Came here late afternoon and saw only a few other people. Felt like it was a private beach resort. Couldn't have asked for a better beach day. *****
  • Very nice beach. Unfortunately does not have a restaurant or kiosk you can enjoy this wonderful beach.

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.
