For surfers

The beach is about 10 minutes walk from the main beach and very quiet. It doesnt provide too much shade but is great for sunbathing and surfing.

Not as attractive as Jericoacoara's 'beach but you have wonderful views from above as you walk up the path during your walk to Pedra Furada !

Malhada beach is another lovely beach in the Jericoacoara area. Wind & waves here get to be a challenge so please be careful. A nice clean beach, it is a lovely place to visit. Recommended!

It is a nice beach, but not the best in Jeri. I was there to see the landscape, got back to the main beach 10 min later. The place is full of rocks and there were no people in the sea actually. Anyway, go if you have spare time.

This beach was a bit too windy, but it was also not as crowded as the other beach in town. Worth the walk overall.

A nice place to go at least once, but the beach has way too many rocks. Since it's next to Jericoacoara's beach, it's worth a visit, but it's unlikely you'll spend your day there.

This is a very different landscape, you must go there early in the morning to avoid heavy sea. As it's a preserved area, no kiosks allowed so bring your own water and trash bags! There are only shadow spots under the coconut trees!

The buggy ride to get there is excellent and the walk to Pedra Furada is really not too long. It's so worth it and you can even buy fresh coconut water once you get there. We really enjoyed this part of the trip!

I don't even like to talk about it because I hope it keeps as private as it is. Local people go there. I love it

A fantastic beach that is a bit more private than the rest around with Beatiful views. It is deffinetely worth to spend some time there to feel even more isolated compared to jericoacara beach.
