The rock itself is nice to see and good for a picture or two (don't expect to be the only tourist there...) but walking there over the beach is more interesting. Start near the famous "sunset dune" and walk towards the location of the Pedra Furada. You will cross beautiful beaches with huge stones, old rock formation, and you can... More

This place is beautiful and I love walking on the beach, so that was awesome. The walk is easy, but on the longer side. Add sun and high temperatures to that and you have something that may not be for everyone. But, load up on sun screen and get your water bottle ready for a gorgeous walk that ends on... More

A really nice walk (30 min) on the hill behind Jericoacoara! When you reach the top of the hill following the "designated" by nature path you can see the arc of Pedra Furada. There is a small rather steep slope to go down to reach the beach and catch nice close pictures of the rocks, so be prepared and take... More

I thought the rock was nice, and the beach was idyllic. But come sunset time, and the place becomes inundated with flag- waving tour groups. Maybe try the middle of the day, or early morning for sunrise, if you're looking for isolation.

A big walk to the stone, it's nice but not awesome the only thing it is very nice, is that in June if I'm not mistaken, on the sunset you can see the sun in the whole of the rock...

It was nice. Over hyped and over it after about ten minutes. It was a nice hike along the beach to get to it from Jeri. Lots of little caves and cliffs to explore.

Beautiful scenario, specially at sunset. Although Duna do Pôr do Sol has a more stunning view, at least one day you should spend at Pedra Furada. Not only Pedra Furada is beautiful, but there are many colourful and beautiful rocks nearby. You should definitively check the surrounding area for a great view.

It's a beautiful place, there's no doubt. However be prepared for a good walk (there are other transportation means like horse, buggies don't enter!). You can take some interesting pictures. Go with low tide otherwise you will get it more difficult....take water (there is no commerce there!)

Try to do it as part of the buggy trip to Lagoa Azul. Its the trademark of Jeri so I guess if you are there you should go and have a look
