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.Escape the urban bustle at Coqueirinho Beach and Cabo Branco Beach. Visit Praia do Jacare and Picaozinho - Embarcacao Pirata for some beach relaxation. Change things up with a short trip to Praia de Tambaba in Conde (about 52 minutes away). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja Sao Francisco, kick back and relax at Tambau Beach, stroll through Camboinha Beach, and pause for some photo ops at Busto de Tamandare.
