Set amongst giant sand dunes on the north coast of Brazil, this village is a real escape from the trappings of civilization, the last stretch of the journey to this laid back beach destination being made by 4×4.

Apart from the stunning beaches and otherworldly landscape of sand dunes, one of the main attractions here are the almost constant breezes and calm seas that make this the premier location in Brazil for kite-surfing and windsurfing.

However, there’s still plenty here for those not interested in wind-propelled sports here; with such activities as sand boarding, visits to the nearby crystalline lagoons and just simply chilling out on one of the stunning beaches.

Jericoacoara truly is a unique location, quite unlike any other beach destination in the world and one that you’re likely to remember for years to come.
