The northeast of Brazil, from the state of Bahia to the state of Ceará, boasts a stunning and varied coastline of palm fringed deserted beaches, reef pools, mangrove swamps and busy little fishing towns.

Some of Brazil’s most exclusive beach retreats can be found on this stretch of coast as well as a handful of wonderful small, locally run pousadas that are ideal for those with their own vehicle looking to explore the area at their leisure.

Although the southern parts of this coastline do have a rainy season it’s more than manageable with a well-timed afternoon nap, whilst further north there are over 300 days of sunshine on average each year making it a fantastic destination to visit year round.
