Sailing along the beaches is beautiful. You can also rent a boat with a guide and visit "Areia Vermelha Island", which only appears when the tide is low. (please, take a look at Must see activities, water ice-cream) There are many marinas on the beaches. The best places to rent boats with guides are Bessa Beach or Camboinha Beach.
A far Barroc Church- Guia Church.
This church was first built in 1591.As it is high on a hill, it used to be a fortress. The Portuguese built it so they could observe the coast and a possible invasion coming from the sea. The style of the church is called "Tropical inspiration Barroc". It was built in limestone. Then, in the middle of the eighteenth century, the "Nossa Senhora da Guia Church" was finally finished.
It is located on Lucena Beach, about 30km from João Pessoa.
João Pessoa outruns your wildest dreams!
"You know, the Dutch were here n stayed for a while"
This fort was build by the Dutch on the river side of Joao Pessoa, you know, apart from many other cities this city was not first build on the beautifull Atlantic coast, it started inland, on the banks of the Rio Paraiba, and then graduatly grew towards the Atlantic coast, there the beaches are still in good condition, many people visit over the weekends but during the normal weekdays you will have some chance to walk the beach by yourself!
"See Turtles laying eggs on the beach"
Something I have never seen before, you need to be there in June to see the small turtles crawl to the Atlantic Ocean, the ones that go the wrong way are picked up, transported in a bucket to the right side of the beach to help them find the ocean which will be their mother for the rest of their lifes.
One beauty of a landmark!
As far as I know the only place on this planet where the turtles lay their eggs even when there are people sunbathing on the beach!
If you have at least one day left, bargain your way into a beach buggy one, for about 150 Reais you can rent a buggy, driver included, and set of to see the fantastic beaches surrounding João Pessoa. There is a trip to the South and a trip to the North, both worth taking! oOn the photo you can see the ferry cross the river to visit the part North from João Pesosa.
