Fodor's Expert Review Praia do Araruna
Coconut trees line the 8-km (5-mile) length of this beach, about 20-minutes (a 4-km/2-mile taxi ride) northeast of Soure. Here you may see flocks of scarlet ibis that appear out of nowhere. This beach tends to be much emptier than the nearby Praia da Barra, and you can swim in the small tributaries away from the main river. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; sunset; swimming; walking.
