The Must-See Hidden Beaches of Brazil

Updated: Feb 11, 2022

Just like many tourists, your desire to travel Brazil was probably heightened by the often talked about coastline and beaches. Considering all the hype over the country's coastal regions, many of the public beaches are densely populated and hard to enjoy. To experience the beach life offered, set out to find some of the more desolate beaches, these are the true gems found throughout Brazil.

Fernando de Noronha, Pernambuco

There are 16 beaches in Fernando de Noronha, Pernambuco. Of course, this could take weeks to explore each one. Volcanic rock formations create jagged cliffs where you'll spot spinner dolphins and sea turtles, hugging its edges. The marine life there is one to be admired.

Raia da Pipa, Rio Grande Do Norte

Surfers have taken over this spot due to its perfect waves and tides. Bars and small beach shops align the streets and coast while all on goers view marine life. Set up a spot on the sandy beach for some relaxation in the sun.

Cambury, São Paulo

In this wealthier region of Brazil, it provides updated roads, modern hotels, eye-catching mansions, and much more. Camp out on the sandy beaches of Cambury Beach for a nap or stroll through the small beach towns for an abundance of entertaining things to do. In the evening, check out some of the nation's award-winning restaurants for ethnic cuisine and a glass of local wine to fill your belly and delight your palette before catching the sunset.

Morro de São Paulo, Bahia

A historic town which was once ignored, but today it is one of the must-see places in Brazil. The white sands and tropical climate bring in thousands of tourists every year. Take advantage of this coastline region and its five great beaches by staying in one of the many modernized hotels or guest houses.

Jericoacoara, Ceará

This resort town brings in an abundance of international vacationers, yet it still provides its guests with some hidden beach fronts and other great coastal features. Surrounded by desert, Jericoacoara, Ceará has sand dunes as high as the eye can see. From the top, you will see windsurfers and sand boarders. If you get there early enough or in the later hours of the day, you can view the magnificent sunrises or sunsets enjoyed by the natives to the land on a near-daily basis.


South America is all too often skipped by
travelers, but shouldn't be.
This vast land offers stunning options ready
to explore.
While Rio, Machu Picchu, Cartagena, or
Carnaval are often the first stops, there is so
much more to experience.
