Some people say it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and certainly at the top among those of Brazil. The beach of Jericoacoara, Jeri for short, could become a trap for those who visit it and think to stop for one or two days because in the end it is hard to leave. Sea, beach, a large dune perfect for photographs, Brazilian relaxation and in the end all sitting around watching the sun salute you in a riot of colors during sunset.
Located 300 km from Fortaleza, Jericoacoara is an ecological sanctuary. It was one of 10 most beautiful beaches in the world by the Washington Post newspaper. Since 2002 it has been declared a National Park with the intent to preserve intact the natural beauty of its giant dunes, coconut trees, natural lagoons with crystal clear water, mangroves and endless beaches. It ‘s a small village overlooking the Atlantic Ocean but now it is known throughout the world as one of the best places for windsurfing and kitesurfing. The sunshine, the mild temperature of the water and the wind always blows steady allowing for most of the year to practice these sports without missing a single day of vacation.
