Paradise can be found all along the coast of Brazil. The swaying palms, golden sand and rustic beach villages sprinkled along the Atlantic coastline will fulfil all of your tropical fantasies. We found one such slice of paradise in the quaint beachside village of Jericoacoara, an isolated hideaway nestled amongst soaring sand dunes and crystal clear lagoons. Although incredibly popular on the backpacker circuit, the town, hidden within the Jericoacoara National Park, remains somewhat inaccessible, making the journey in and out challenging and left only to those with time on their hands. We couldn’t resist the temptation to find the ideal oceanside nirvana where we could lie back on the beach with a Brazilian cocktail in hand, and explore the alluring turquoise waters of the tropical north.
