For wild, unspoilt, off the beaten track beaches, with great options for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing and the best diving and snorkelling in the country, the Northeast of Brazil is THE place to head.
The former fishing village of Jericoacoara, with its vast rolling dunes, is a mecca for windsurfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts; here we recommend the charming Chili Beach Hotel. From Jericoacoara, we urge you to visit the spectacular Lencois Maranhenses, a vast national park just outside the Amazon basin of undulating sand dunes that in the rainy season, fill with freshwater lakes of gorgeous blues and greens. The Lencois Marahenses National Park is a truly stunning natural phenomenon, virtually undiscovered.
Remote Fernando de Noronha, some 200 miles off the northeast coast of Brazil, offers amazingly clear waters rich in marine life, gorgeous beaches and luxury accommodation. Visitor numbers are limited here ensuring the island’s unspoilt beauty remains intact. Fernando de Noronha is a must for divers – this is the number one spot to dive in Brazil. The best hotel to stay at? Pousada Maravilha.
