It's a little hard to get there as you have to climb down a very irregular field, but it's worth it. You can get there early in the morning by the sea cost, or walk from up the hill using the Lighthouse trail. Use your tennis shoes and you will climb better. Hire a horse car for the trip back...

We really enjoyed hiking from our hotel to Pedra Furada - excellent hike with amazing coastal views. The kids were also thrilled with the adventure - definitely recommend walking! There are friendly dogs who act as guides (my son named "his" white companion Rufus - see if you can get an escort from him!), donkeys grazing on the greenery, goats... More

Great sunset in the middle of somewhere far far away. The fun began walking from Jeri through the dunes and the beach under the blue sky with a strong wind.

it is the beach and the rock with a hole, through which you can see, at the time of sunset, the sun going down.The wind is always strong and gives a wild feeling. The ride to the place with a horse is amasing, so relaxing, quite and absolutely slow with great views of the dunes and the whole area.

If you are going with small children, definitely take a buggy to go to Pedra Furada. The buggy leaves you 1,5 km from Pedra Furada, but most of the walk is along the beach with great views. If you go walking from Jeri beach it is 2 km, but from what I've seen part of the walk is on top... More

the walk to the pedra along the beach is long and a bit tricky, but the overall experience is worth it

The walk along the beach was nice, although not always easy depending on the sea level, and the pedra furada is a nice formation, although not a wonder. I would guess that sky and sea level would make a difference to the picture.

The walk along the coast to get to this attraction is a nice one, but once you arrive at the rock itself it's very busy and so getting a nice photograph without strangers in the background is near impossible! The rock itself looks nice and everything, but it's not breathtaking and after ten minutes you want to move on and... More

Everybody wants a picture there. You'll be standing in a line. A good time to have a coconut to drink and eat. You'll get your picture of you and your group taken by other nice tourists.
