Brazil is a wide tropical country that lies in the equator so of course, it has its share of beautiful coastlines. If you want to partake in the joys of the endless summer, you should check out the country’ top beaches. Here are some recommended areas that you need to check out!
Arpoador (Rio de Janeiro)
The list of the best beaches in the country often includes Arpoador. It is linked to the area’s more popular beach haunts, the Copacabana and Ipanema. This is a spot that is frequented by locals more than tourists though so there are fewer crowds swarming about. This is the spot for travelers who want to enjoy surfing in the country.
Lagoinha do Leste (Florianopolis in Santa Catarina)
Lagoinha do Leste is the marvel of the Florianopolis island. If you want to avoid tourists, this is the beach to go. To reach the place, you need to take a boat or a truck ride across the rainforest. Camping can be done in the area as well.
Praia de Fazenda (Sao Paulo)
Another area that is not in the tourist way, this is a beach that connects to a great, wide bay where you can swim snorkel and have peaceful fun in the water. There are also dolphins and whales that frequent the place so if you want to watch some aquatic animals swim by, you can do some kayaking in the area.
Jericoacoara (Fortaleza in Ceara)
The beach has miles and miles of sand that is reminiscent of beaches in the country. What makes it distinctive from the pack though is the presence of freshwater lagoons. The lagoons are located in the midst of sand dunes found all over the internal part of the beach.
Praia de Canoa Quebrada (Conoa Quebrada in Ceara)
Another Ceara gem is the Praia de Canoa Quebrada. It can be found in Canoa, which was a fishing village in the olden days.
