Best known as “Jeri”, Jericoacoara is a small fishing village located 300 km from Fortaleza. Set amongst giant sand dunes, the last stretch of the journey must be made by 4x4 vehicules. Jeri is a real escape from the trappings of civilization, a place to relax on the beach, swim in crystalline lagoons and admire the sunset at the top of the largest sand dune. With summer time all year round and a reliable sea breeze, surf, windsurf and kite surf are big attractions there (lessons are available for beginners). Although very rustic, Jeri counts with many great options of restaurants, bars, shops and accommodations, from hostels to deluxe hotels.
