Beach Hopping in Brazil

Overview

Brazil is famous for its endless coastline of blissful beaches. This exciting holiday allows to you hop along the northeast coastline, taking in unique and varied tropical beaches.
The tour begins in Salvador de Bahia, a vibrant, colourful and culturally rich city on the coast. You will have a few days to soak up the atmosphere before taking a catamaran to the tropical island village Moro de Sao Paulo. An old Portuguese fort surrounds the laid back village, which leads on to four beaches, linked by sandy paths. After a few days in paradise, you will return to Salvador and then hop northwards to your next beach stop, Praia de Pipa, which is possibly the most unspoiled and beautiful beach in Brazil. The perfect semi-circular Golfihno (Dolphin) Bay, fringed with lush forest is home to many dolphins that play in the waves before your eyes. Your next and final stop is the small bohemian beach town of Jericoacoara. With the only access by 4x4 vehicles across sand dunes, it truly is an off-the-beaten track oasis surrounded by beautiful beaches, mangroves and the endless dunes and lagoons of the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park.

Arrival transfer in Salvador

Salvador, in Brazil’s north eastern state of Bahia, was once the magnificent capital of Portugal’s New World colony. It is known for its vibrant Afro-Brazilian culture, 17th and 18th century Portuguese colonial architecture and tropical coastline. The historic heart of the city is the Pelourinho neighbourhood where cobblestone alleys open onto large squares lined with ornate churches and colourful buildings. Most nights you will hear Olodum drummers pounding out powerful rhythms on the streets. The heritage of the descendants of African slaves is well preserved here, from music and religion to food and dance.

Salvador

The Lower City Tour offers another perspective of the sprawling city, taking us to the quiet waters of the Itapagipe Peninsula where life moves at a slower pace than the bustling upper city. Fishermen fish from dugout canoes, locals collect shellfish at low tide, schooners lie at anchor, all protected by the famous Bonfim church, one of the most important churches of pilgrimage in Brazil and deeply syncretised with the Candomblé. We continue to the Monserrat district with its panoramic view of the city and on to the Mercado Modelo, a thriving market for local goods and souvenirs. This is also a great place to test your bargaining skills!

Jericoacoara, or Jeri as it is sometimes known, is a small isolated fishing village in north western Brazil, surrounded by National Park. The sandy streets of the village are nestled between the wide beach, grassy hills and the towering and majestic Pôr do Sol (Sunset) sand dune, the perfect vantage point from which to see the “Emerald Sunset”, a phenomenon where the top edge of the setting sun momentarily turns emerald green before it dips below the horizon.
