      Yeah we heard great things about Jericoacoara and wanted to visit but didn’t have time to make it that far north. Next time!

    Nice picks, but havent you gone to the “ecological route” in Alagoas? Its near Maceio, theres a city called São Miguel dos Milagres and the Patacho beach is just amazing. In my opinion this part is the most beautiful of Brazilian coast (I am Brazilian.

    I’m a fan of Paraty. That quaint little town with cobblestone streets, and rocky beach is another world.

    Did you not get to Florianopolis?

      No, we didn’t get a chance to visit Florianopolis but the beaches there do look gorgeous. We were unable to get that far south unfortunately.

    Leslie, whenever I see the word “Brazil” my eyes always perk up. It is on my “bucket List”. Haven’t decided when yet. I, too, am a NYer now in the South. Love travel. Have some appreciation for art – music, paintings, etc. Thanks, Leslie, for posting those beach pics. You guys look great! Trindade and Gunga were my favoritesto look at.

    Unfortunately you guys hadn’t visited Jericoacoara beach, also called by “Jeri” placed in northeast state of Ceará. That is another beautiful beach in Brazil. Porto de Galinhas in Pernambuco state and Barra da Lagoa in the city is Florianopolis, state of Santa Catarina could be mentioned also. Great Brazilian beaches guide!

      Thanks for the tips – a few other people have mentioned these same beaches that we missed. Unfortunately we didnt have time to get that far north or south, but we definitely will hit them up next time we go!

    The next time you come visit Brazil, you must go to Santa Catarina state. It’s plenty of amazing beaches, untouched nature and beautiful people!

    Fernando de Noronha really is the number one.. I really hope we can have a chance to visit Brazil too.. Thanks for sharing this beautiful pictures of beaches..

      Yeah Noronha stands out amongst every beach area we’ve ever visited in the world. It’s too bad it’s pricey and difficult to visit but I guess that’s a big reason it’s so pristine and not crowded.

    Haven’t you been in Sao Paulo? We have a lot of pretty beautiful beaches in the Northeast Coast. You have to try this cities: Sao Sebastiao e Ubatuba. Some beaches in the Southeast Coast is nice to visit too like Santos, Guaruja and Ilha Comprida.

    It is sad that my partner does not have the same appreciation for beaches. I am happy that he makes an effort to go visit them though. I just so love the photos of the places you have been. I will remember each one and hope to visit them someday.

    just an information: “BrazilTour” is not the official site of tourism of Brazil. They use the official logo, but they aren’t from government.

    Brazil is close to number one on my “must-see” list. I hope to get there, sooner, rather than later. When I do, I’ll be looking for beaches. So, thanks for writing this article. All of the other stuff I’ve read about Brazilian beaches seems so much more touristy – these sound like the gems. Cheers!

    Great article. I’ve been to Parity and stayed in Trindade, which we loved though it can be quite rainy in a rain forest!!

    For those looking for more sunshine I recommend Saquarema on the costa do sol northeast of Rio, towards Buzios without the glitz and tour boats. We stayed at the Masai just outside of town and used bikes to get everywhere, really nice friendly fishing village and stunning beach

    I am looking for an authentic beach town north of Salvador, praia do forte looks promising but I don’t want anything too glitzy or Euro feeling.
