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 JEEP 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 JEEP 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.
- During this tour, the vehicle goes through the Paraiba river on a ferry. This route also includes a visit the church "Nossa Senhora da Guia", and the ruin of the church "Bom Sucesso", for those who like adventure.
- Lucena being a fishermen village, fishes are a must. It is best to do this tour when the tide is low in the late morning...

There are 2 OPTIONS:
- Lucena Adventure: Include the Fort of Cabedelo. Riding along the beach. With Jeep trail in the woods, passing by the ruin of Bom Sucesso and going up above the cliff of Barra do Miriri;

Kayak tour on the north shore of João Pessoa


Northern coast, other side of river Paraíba:

The north coast of Joao Pessoa in Lucena, crossing the Paraiba river with a ferry: visit the fort of Santa Catarina in Cabedelo, visit the church "Nossa Senhora da Guia" and the "Bom Sucesso" church.

There is a large stretch on the beach to the "Bara do Miriri" (access via JEEP 4x4). This tour mixes adventure and discovery, a gastronomy specialized in seafood, with a little of culture (old churches and the fort Santa Catarina).

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".

  3. WITH THE JEEP, YOU HAVE 2H00 BONUS TIME to enjoy beaches;
  4. The tours are conducted with an ACCREDITED TOURIST GUIDE;
  5. THERE ARE NOT JUST BEACHES!: stunning viewpoints, JEEP 4x4 trails, tips and trip customization are important;
  6. Do not go out with the first buggy man who will only show half the things, and will not take care of you;
  7. CAUTION: some speaks of seven beaches, but will only stop in 4 beaches, not showing all viewpoints (only 6h of trip);
  8. IT IS ESSENTIAL BOOK IN ADVANCE: you will not get a place in time up!
