The coastline of beaches south of João Pessoa:

The south coast of Paraiba is famous for the incredible beauty of its pristine beaches, each with its own beauty. Most of the route is within an environmental protection area, APA Tambaba, from Tabatinga beach to Barra de Graú (on the other side of Tambaba beach).

Colored sandy cliffs, the must-see viewpoints (access only via 4x4), mangroves and lush vegetation, form a unique combination. The south coast beaches of Joao Pessoa are of an indescribable beauty and every beach is different from the other.

It has cliffs, canyons, palm trees, pools and breathtaking views. For those who like the sea blue and pristine nature, this place is perfect!


02.- Beaches of João Pessoa: north shore of Paraíba

There are 2 SUV tours on the North shore of João Pessoa: it is necessary to distinguish between the urban north coast (up to Cabedelo), and the north shore across the river Paraíba (in Lucena):

- Urban north coast: combines tourist attractions such as the Red Sand Island, the fort Santa Catarina, and the sunset on the beach of the Alligator, only at low tideCHECK THE TIDE.

- North coast in Lucena: well differentiated from the south, allowing big runs on deserted beaches and shallow warm water of the Ponta de Lucena, until the wild Barra do Miriri.

It is best to do this tour when the tide is low in the late morning to enjoy the natural pools.

Lucena Adventure: We ride along the beach. With a 4x4 trail in the woods, passing by the ruin of Bom Sucesso, and the viewpoints going up above the cliff of Barra do Miriri.

The north coast of Joao Pessoa in Lucena, crossing the Paraiba river on a ferry: we visit the fort Santa Catarina in Cabedelo if the tide is high, the church Nossa Senhora da Guia and the ruin Bom Sucesso.

This tour mixes adventure and discovery in the woods, a gastronomy specialized in seafood, with the local culture.

For those who like rides on deserted beaches, this is the tour! Due to the geological structure, the beaches of the north coast of Joao Pessoa are extensive.

In the village of Lucena there are many fishermen; livestock circulate freely everywhere... nature is untouched. Lucena contains a major coconut plantation; it is known as "coco vale".
