Beyond the famous beaches of Rio de Janeiro heading (flying) northeast you’ll discover the golden coast of Brazil where 7,000 miles of unspoiled beaches awaits the curious traveler. Many are secluded, paradisiacal beaches adorned by pristine white sand lapped lazily by the temperate turquoise of the Atlantic Ocean with tall palms overhead providing relief from the sun. Some, like Natal and Joao Pessoa and others, boast miles of huge dune fields assembled by coastal winds where blissful days can be spent traversing hundreds of different beaches by dune buggy, avoiding traffic as you glide past untouched sand dunes and witness glorious coastlines where the ocean water is known for its clarity, the ideal opportunity for beach-lovers exploration.
