Map of Jericoacoara
Jericoacoara is a special fishing village located on the northeastern coast of Brazil, in the state of Ceara. 300kms West of Fortaleza, almost exactly on the equator (2o47' 38" S / 40o31' 0'' W). The town has gained fame as being one of the most beautiful and lengthy beaches in the world, surrounded by sand dunes and freshwater lagoons - drawing people from all over the world to her shores.
Sitting on the most northern tip of Ceará, Jeri's special position allows visitors to admire views which face both the east and west side of the ocean, making it possible for you to see both the sun rising and sun setting into the sea. This special geographic position is also what makes Jeri one of the windiest places in the world.
