Come for the Sunset

Take a river cruise at sunset and listen to the saxophone player serenade you. He has been doing it every night for 15 years! Beautiful sound and sights.

Unfortunately I arrived late for the sunset but even then I found a violinist playing setting up a nice music to walk on the street with. There are local stalls with cheap products and some restaurants in which I didn't go but looked nice

My wife and I were amazed as the sun started to set and that sound started to tickle our ear from far off and got closer and closer. The saxophone with the sunset in João Pessoa is a wonderful mix. Recommend to all that love to end day in the most romantic way possible.

We were moored in the marina just downstream from this so called "beach". Pleasure craft take groups of tourists out daily to dance the samba on board, watch the sunset, and subsequently be serenaded by a saxophonist in a Brazilian type gondola playing Ravel’s Bolero. With its craft shops, a few bars and restaurants along a short promenade, this is... More

There are not enough words to describe how awesome it is!! It is very easy to get there! Don't need to get a tour or anything, just put on google and go through BR-230. Onde there, you can park the car for max 5 reais. You need to be there for sunset, so it is best to be there at... More

My experience at Jacare Beach was splendid. There's more to do than just watching the sunset. But, of course, the sunset is the main reason for coming here. This is a low-key, laid back type of place. The sunset was lovely, not spectacular, but well worth seeing in this unique environment. I recommend arriving at least an hour or so... More

The best hour to go to there is in the sunset that is take breathing. The restaurants were removed, but still is a good option to visit.

Watch the wonderful sunset over the river, listening to Ravel's bolero while having a nice cold coconut water or just appreciating a good tapioca is simply awesome, always a good program.
