Best of Brazil’s Northeast Coast
Dune Buggying in Natal: Natal is famed for its coastline of quasi Saharan sand dunes, and the best way to navigate them is by dune buggy.
Praia da Pipa: Charming hotels, gourmet restaurants, and chic boutiques haven’t spoiled the laid-back vibe or idyllic beauty of one of the most famous dolphin-studded beaches on Brazil’s northeastern coast.
Canoa Quebrada: This hip beach town combines a mellow atmosphere with the high drama of crumbling red cliffs, immense white dunes, and luminous blue waters.
Jericoacoara: Remote and unspoiled Jericoacoara is more than just one of the planet’s most revered and worshipped beaches — it’s an otherworldly experience.
Projeto Reviver (Praia Grande) in São Luís: Crammed with pastel-colored palaces and pulsing with reggae and pounding drums, São Luís’s historic center is one of the most atmospheric colonial ensembles in Brazil.
Lençóis Maranhenses: One of Brazil’s most spectacular national parks features immense snow-white dunes with valleys that contain jade-green lagoons.
