We decided to walk along the beach in the afternoon to get to Pedra Furada. It is very rocky and the sand in the late afternoon gets pretty hot, so be aware of that. It's about 2 kilometers (like a mile and a quarter) of a walk whether you start from the beach or from the actual city, so prepare... More

Crowded but nice. You can walk from the town. You can also go by buggy but it is more expensive. Very nice during the sunset.

It is nice, but people get crazy to get a good picture and can be really annoying! The good thing is that when its gets closer to the sunset, they call people away from the rock so that everyone can get a good picture. It can be really beautiful that way.

It is Jericoacoara post card, so you must see and take some pictures. Be prepared to walk 1.5 miles.

I visited it close to the sunset time, and it had a wonderful view. If you want to climb some rocks, go to the end and climb it to the place where they took this picture... There are some goats on the mountain, but they are innofensive.

We walked up from Jeri and it took us about 40mins each way. We walked on the top of the hill / cliff top of the way there, and back along the beach when the tide was out. Really enjoyable walk.

...if you have some spare time. I thought the walk there was the nicest thing about it. From the main beach turn right and follow the trail. It took me about 40mins (first along the beach, then up on the hill with nice views). It's not very difficult, just possibly very hot in the afternoon sun. At the rock you... More

The walk from Jeri beach to the Pedra Furada is amazing (better than the rock itself). I did the walk through the hills and it's incredible! The only downside is going down the hill when you get to pedra furada. it's not an easy path and could be a bit dangerous to some people.

The "Pedra Furada" itself is nothing sensational, but the walk there from the buggy worth it because there are other interesting rock formations. Do not let the guide to press you regarding the time, take your the time, the beach and try to avoid peak times ... a lot of people!
