11 Best Beaches in Brazil

Brazil has become almost synonymous with certain grooming habits and scantily clad women; from Carnival to the beach, the women of Brazil seem to have confidence that most women only dream of. It helps that not only do they have good genes, but they live in a country where beautiful beaches abound. The beach is a popular destination for Brazilians and tourists alike, and, fortunately, the country has many of them. Famed for its white sand balnearios almost as much as its gorgeous women and skimpy bikinis, Brazil boasts stretches of coastline that are breathtaking and unique. With so many beaches to choose from, it can seem overwhelming to pick just one to visit! Our list should help you narrow down your selections—but be careful! You’ll probably want to visit all of them, so schedule some extra time into your trip and pack an extra bathing suit or 2.

11. Canoa Quebrada, Ceara

This small fishing village is known as “the pearl” of Brazil’s east coast. Following a similar trajectory as Jeri and Pipa before it, it was discovered in the 1970s by hikers and backpackers, who turned the village into a hippie haven. The area is now becoming increasingly popular with tourists. It is known for its panoramic views, its scenic dunes and cliffs and its vibrant nightlife. Popular activities include horseback riding, sailing, mountain biking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, sandboarding and dune buggy rides. Most shops, restaurants and accommodations are located along Broadway, the main street of Canoa Quebrada.

The beach boasts miles of white sand backed by striking red cliffs and contrasted with the deep blue sea. The “broken canoe” (the English translation of the name) is now the most important tourist attraction after the city of Fortaleza. The average temperature is around 27 degrees Celsius and the sun is present almost all year, with the rainy season taking place between March and May.
