Brazil: Beaches of the northeast

Visit Us

The northeast of Brazil, once wealthy with vast sugar plantations, has a cultural identity all of its own to complement its wonderful beaches.

Near Natal is Pipa, whose gorgeous top-ten beach is visited by turtles and the bay by porpoises. Close to Recife is Olinda, a preserved cobbled town of traditional baroque Portuguese churches and houses, a centre of culture and the arts with an effervescent display at Carnival. Sweeping beaches at Porto de Galinhas and Maragogi can be reached from here while the marine wonderland of Fernando de Noronha is a diving and snorkelling magnet with Unesco status.

Further south, Bahia's seemingly infinite tropical coast has something to suit everyone: typically Brazilian beach towns such as Praia do Forte and Morro de São Paulo have attractive palm-lined beaches within easy reach of Salvador. Upmarket Trancoso has fine boutique hotels and a gorgeous village square. Meanwhile, Boipeba island, the Marau peninsula and the remote village of Caraiva remain off the beaten track and perfect for those seeking unspoilt Brazil.

What our experts say

I like nothing better than stepping into my bikini and heading off to the beach, so for me the northeast of Brazil is Heaven. There are thousands of kilometres of palm-shaded sand offering an infinity of variety, from family-friendly (but low-key) resorts like Praia do Forte to the ultra hip Pipa, via the party beach of Morro de São Paulo and the Paradise idylls at Trancoso.
