Twenty years ago this beach was a simple village dedicated to fishing with no electricity. Currently, the site has grown in infrastructure but keeps all the peace and tranquility that you expect from a place like this.
The main reason for this is that to get access to this beach will have to use a 4×4 vehicle to pass the complicated ways. And even once you get to the beach of Jericoacoara, you will find that most of the streets of the village are covered with sand, so getting it is best to rent a buggy.
The meaning of the word Jericoacoara is Hoyo de Tortugas, and is given by the fact that many turtles come to the beach to dig holes to lay their eggs. So visiting Jericoacoara probably can see countless turtles.
But what’s really amazing about the beach is Jericocoara sunset. In fact, one of the most popular activities is going to the Dune Sunset, in the western part of the beach and watch the sun in the confrontation with the dune. At night, it is also impressive to watch the sky, as it is one of the clearest skies can be appreciated.
