The whole coastline is a picture-perfect beach, hidden or next to a fishing village or town, with small pousadas to luxury resorts, all fringed with palm trees and fine white sand.

No matter where you travel along 7,500 km of mostly flat coastline, you find a picture-perfect beach, hidden, deserted or next to a fishing village or town, fringed with palm trees, coconut grove and fine white sand.

The northern coast in windswept with tall sand dunes and the east coast has coves, reef and secluded bays. All thrive on a beach life, based on small bars serving exotic tropical fruits, small restaurantes, music, joggers, swimmers, surfers and lively sports, including games of foot-volley, football and volleyball.

For those seeking to escape the city there is the nearby beach town of Buzios, famous for its picturesque beaches and trendy bohemian lifestyle, where the rich and famous of South America come to relax and socialise. Discover the numerous bays and coves with hidden sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, dotted throughout this peninsula. Alternatively visit the charming town of Parati, where the pedestrianised town centre has retained is original cobbled streets and rich colonial architecture, from when it was a port on the Gold Route from Minas Gerais. Discover deserted idyllic golden beaches at the foot of verdant jungle-covered mountains.

Located nearby to Salvador da Bahia are the former fishing villages of Morro Sao Paulo and Praia do Forte. These tranquil paradises offer miles of long deserted, white sandy beaches and warm seas with stunning clarity to explore the shoreline reefs. Here you can relax in the shade of swaying coconut palms or explore the cafes, galleries and market in the nearby village.

Further north is Recife and Natal, where an endless coastline of palm-fringed hides small beach paradises that embody the essence of Brazilian beach culture, with little laid-back towns with a host of small bars and restaurants playing live music. Near to Natal is Praia da Pipa, where a mixture of red sandy beaches and sheltered covers attract dolphins and marine turtles, set against a backdrop of lush Atlantic coastal forest. Or for the seeking to escape society there is Fernando de Noronha, in a remote archipelago of tiny volcanic islands, where the crystalline waters contain an abundance of tropical fish and untouched beaches.
