Every evening hundreds of people walk up this famous dune to get the perfect sunset picture. Look to your right at the top of the dune and you can take in the beauty of Jericoacoara village, a sight not possible to be seen from anywhere else. Once the setting sun disappears behind the sea, everyone gives the event a round of applause before heading back into Jeri village to start their evenings events.
Be warned, if it is a windy day, expect to get blasted by sand on the dune!
ClubVentos is a watersports centre, located to the right side of Jericoacoara beach. From the beach it looks like a luxury private hotel, however, everyone is welcome and it’s one of our best places to watch the sunset. The centre boasts beachfront sunbeds raised above beach level, so the view you get for sunset is spectacular.
Their happy hour just happens to be between 17:00 and 18:00, the perfect time to get a drink from their new bar, relax and watch the sunset in total comfort.
