Great place to sit down and drink bear in front of the river, however all restaurants close their patios when the a tacky artist playing a saxophone floating in a boat during the sunset - ewww how tacky is that?.

It is the best place near to joão Pessoa to watch the sunset. Jacare is small area along the river Paraiba. There are cute small shops and some restaurants. You can sit at one of the restaurants or watch the sunset from an open area along the river.

You can but a trip by bus and boat to see the sunset. You make the reservation at the hotel and pay them 35 reais for the bus. The bus will pick you up at your hotel. When you get to the beach you buy the boat ticket there for 25 reais. It's a lovely experience with music and dance.

You really need to do this sunset beach, a saxophonist takes to a boat and plays the sun down. In addition many street traders, the guy painting on tiles is amazing and their cheap to buy

Beautiful sunset, good food, tons of souvenirs, even frozen drinks can be found at the waterfront. Don't forget to stop and take pictures with all the alligator statues.

We were worried this would be a bit touristy for us. While clearly a tourist event, the sunset was amazing and the bars and food good value. Get there an hour before sunset and grab a waterside table at the restaurant directly in front of you when you walk down the road - from where the music begins and ends....

Surrounded by people - some in tears can be really, really surreal. However with the help of a few caipirinhas and a lovely sunset it is worth it.

Good place to visit, but dont expect anything special. A lot of shops, a nice sunset, and drinks overpriced.
