Brazil Beaches

Brazil beaches northeast

When you Brazil travel northeast, you will see why the region is known world-wide for its breath-takingly beautiful beaches of warm white sands and spectacular sand dunes.

It has been said that each of Brasil north east states is competing for the crown - 'South American Costa Brava'. Hardly surprising, when you consider that there are plans for a $16 million spend on promoting the region this year. An excessive five times of what the national agency - Embratur is spending to promote Brazil on a whole.

There is already enticing promotional references to some stretches of Brazilian beaches in the northeast which have not yet been developed. Bahia's coast for instance is being hailed as the Green Line; Pernambuco's beach line, as the Golden Coast and Rio Grande do Norte as the Route of the Sun.

The impact of tourism on beaches in Brazil

Major cities along the north east coast such as Olinda, Recife, São Luís and Fortaleza are steeped in colonial heritage, making them icreasingly popular among beach loving tourists. While Natal and Maceio, have seen major and increasing tourism and beach-worshipper interest in recent decades.

Despite the the fact that the northeast is a thriving beach haven and is witnessing substantial tourism year on year, this is still in its infancy so the region has not yet become a victim of its own success. Many, if not most of the north east cities boasts city beaches, in addition to the more idyllic and well hidden Brasil beaches along the coastline. The more deserted they are, the more inaccessible they tend to be on foot, so you will need to hire a taxi or beach buggy to get to them.

Whether it is a Brazil beach vacation you're after or any of the numerous north east coast's attractions, then Natal, which is located in the center of the Northeast coast, should be your starting point for getting to know, as well as to beach travel the region. From Natal, you will have easy access to all the other states, major cities and important towns such as Pipa, Fernando de Noronha, Genipabu, João Pessoa, Recife, Olinda and Fortaleza.
