We went there for lunch for 1-2 hours and ended up staying over 4 hours... it is a peaceful and beautiful beach and it is worth to try the "iscas" around...

Great for kitesurfing. But very simple and the town is really not attractive. More for the young traveler in a pack, with a backpack.

The Prea beach is quite a long beach as well. It is ideal for kite & wind surfing and is frequented by the surfers. It does get rather windy here. There are a number of nice restaurants along the beginning stretch of the beach as well. Worth visiting & having your lunch here when you do your Tatajuba trip. Recommended!

There is absolutely nothing there unless you kitesurf. Great kitesurfing beach. Better than Jeri. But the water is not nice to just go and swim. Very choppy and lots of sloppy waves. Lots of Debris on the beach as well.

Jericoacoara is the best place to stay, and some places as west (Tatajuba) are just fine. But the "touristic" places to east are just terrible. Really, terrible. Don't waste Jericoacoara time going to Prea Beach, Lagoa Azul or Árvore da Preguiça. Despite dozens of people trying to sell you these trips, they are just not worthy, not even for free.... More

Normal beach near Jericoacoara. Compared to the beaches to the west, this one is not that nice. Some buggies will go through this beach to go back to Jijoca.

If you kite-surf, go, go, go. It is miles and miles of beach with wind that never stops blowing and visitors from around the globe.
