City Where the Sun Rises First

Situated at the very eastern tip of the Americas, Joao Pessoa is indeed, as its nickname suggests, "the city where the sun rises first." Known for its exceptional integration with nature, the city ranks as the greenest capital in Brazil, with countless parks and even an Atlantic rainforest reserve within its bounds.
Venture out of the city with trips to Camboinha Beach (in Cabedelo), Baia dos Golfinhos (in Praia da Pipa) and Conde (Tabatinga Beach, Coqueirinho Beach, &more). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Tambau Beach, stroll through Ponta de Campina Beach, step off the mainland to explore Picaozinho, and admire the landmark architecture of Monastery of Sao Bento.
