Praia da Ponta do Seixas, Joao Pessoa

#5 of 19 in Beaches in Joao Pessoa
Beach · Nature / Park
At the easternmost point of the Americas, you will find a white sandy beach studded with coconut trees and lapped by the warm, shallow ocean. Praia da Ponta do Seixas is a stunning place, and one where you can enjoy some delicious barbecued fish washed down with a drink from the bar. Sitting atop the towering cliffs of Cabo Branco, the neighboring beach to the north, is a lighthouse, commemorating the natural landmark. At 40 m (131 ft) tall, its triangular design is inspired by the sword-like leaves of the sisal plant. At the top, you get a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding area, including one of the last buildings designed by famed Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
