Hidden away from the crowds of the Copacabana, this area has some stunning beaches that will make your holiday to Brazil one you’ll never forget. First, let’s find out more about Northeast Brazil…
Home to some of the most dramatic and beautiful coastline in all of Brazil, the Northeast is also a haven for long sandy beaches and crystal blue waters – the perfect place to escape the trials and tribulations of city life. The area is made up of a number of major cities, each with something new to offer you. Recife, Olinda, Sao Luis and Fortaleza all have a rich history worth exploring, along with fascinating historical centres to give you an insight into the local culture. In addition to this, every one has a dedicated city beach on which you can relax after a long day exploring the town.
The hotels dotted along the coast are as luxurious as they are varied – from the eco-lodge focused on minimal environmental impact to the decadent private villas, you’ll be hard-pressed not to find something that appeals to your individual taste. What’s more, each can be enjoyed for just a few days if you’re making your way along the coast, or as part of a longer holiday in just one place.
As with most of Brazil, the warmth and sunniness is present year-round. At the height of summer, temperatures can reach up to 32 degrees Celsius, which is more than enough to get your tan started.

Whilst Brazil is a country saturated with outstanding natural beauty, there are some particular highlights worth considering on the Northeast coast. The first of these is the Lencois Maranhenses – a stunning coastal park full of towering sand dunes interspersed with crystal blue freshwater lakes. Located in its own National Park just to the east of the Baia de Sao Jose, this is a relatively unknown gem and is certainly one worth thinking about on your holiday to Brazil.
Another fantastic highlights is Ilha de Fernando de Noronha. Although its quite a journey to get there, it is more than worth it – holding one of the finest oceanic wildlife reserves in the world. The area itself is an archipelago made up of 27 different islands and was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001 because of its incredible natural beauty.
