You're in the 'easterner' point of America… :D

It's been a while but I remember it was a very nice experience all in all. The only issue is that going by yourself may not be safe. We got lost more than once trying to reach the... read more

It's been a while but I remember it was a very nice experience all in all. The only issue is that going by yourself may not be safe. We got lost more than once trying to reach the point. The bus drivers seem that they don't know the place (you should be very sure what name to use to reference)... More

There are a number of things one should do before leaving this world, and one of them is to go to Joao Pessoa and Ponta do Seixas. The most easterly point in the Americas. The place in America closest to Africa! Wow. Wow. Sunset and Sundowns her is just unbelivable.

Maybe many won't find the beach that great, although it may be perfect for a romantic walk but I think the best thing about it is that this is the easternmost point of the Americas, North and South so it's nice to pin this down but only if you're in this sort of things. It's great to relax by just... More

Great place to visit to see the closest point of the Americas to Africa. There is also a great science museum close where there are various displays.

If you will go to the Cabo Branco Station and Cabo Branco Lighthouse, it use this opportunity to know this beach. It is eastermost point of America. This beach is very crowded because it is very close to urban region.

The extreme eastern point of the continent has an amazing view point where one can experience an awesome landscape. Yes, it is windy and sometimes desert, but I didin´t have an unsafe sensation there. If you can get up early, it is even better to be experienced by the sunrise.

This is best used by Brazilians not Tourists . Stay away I am told at night and on Holidays this place fills up like a Soccer Stadium during The World Cup and is a mess and noisy NOT a Fist Class Experience to say the least. You be much better off to stay closer to Cabo Branco Beach instead !!!

Unfortunate this place is not well indicated. We don't exactly know if we are at the point or not.
