The coast of Brazil's far north eastern state of Ceará is dotted with small, remote, oceanfront fishing villages hidden among rolling sand dunes and palm trees, some of which have now turned to tourism.
Jericoacoara is one such place and with idyllic picture-postcard beaches and a relaxed, friendly and fun atmosphere, ‘Jeri’ is particularly suited to families and teenagers.
Further east, Fortaleza is a popular modern beach destination for Brazilians with hotels stretching along the crescent shaped beach. The oceanfront promenade is a hive of activity for runners, dog-walkers, rollerbladers, market sellers and is great for people watching.
