I had no idea how to get here but at about 4pm/half 4, hoards of people began walking out of the main town and over the hills. I followed them and found Pedro Furada easily enough, it takes abut 40 minutes. The walk isn't strenuous but there are slightly steep places, and sharp pebbles/vines along the way so I would... More

Do not waste your time going there unless you are around, go for a jog early morning. Just a rock with a hole, nothing special.

The walk to get there brings you beautiful landscapes, the encounter of the sun and sea, make sure you bring enough water!

Beautiful piece of nature however it is what it is - a rock with a hole in the middle. Visited in July when the sun actually sets in the middle of the hole but it was so full of people trying to snap their money shots that we got a bit annoyed and moved to one of the several little... More

This rock is one of the symbols of Jericoacoara. It takes some time to get there but it is worthy. If you start early you can get most of the way through the beach. If you start late in the day you will have to go through the hill. If you have locomotion problems than hire a buggy that will... More

A group from town walks to Pedra Furada ensemble every day at a certain time (ask at your pousada, they all know what time and where you can catch them). The walk there is really beautiful, with wild donkeys dotting the hills. Once there everyone scrambles to take a photo of themselves in the middle of the rock, which is... More

You get there by coach and then 800m walk up the slope down to the beach. In July, the sunset is exactly between the beach and the stone, and you can see the sun setting exactly the "hole". Fantastic.

There are three ways to access the beach from the pierced stone (pedra furada) and loose stone (pedra solta), however, the path that borders the beaches is the most difficult and beautiful. Should be done by young people willing to walk in very soft sand. Stone loose beacn and stone pierced beach are the two things that should be seen... More
