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

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...

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
