BRAZIL: Prea – Jericoacoara,
“A natural paradise of Non-stop wind”
Jericoacoara is a beach located in the northeast of Brazil,
close to the equator. It was, till about 15 years ago,
an isolated fishing village, without any contact with
modern civilization. There were no roads, no electricity,
no phones, no TV’s, no newspapers, and money was something
almost useless, since deals were based on trading fish
In 1984 the place was declared an "Environment Protection
Area" by federal law. Although tourism has reached the
place, because of it’s extraordinary beauty, it still
keeps the unhurried and peaceful way of life. Because
of the EPA law, it is forbidden to hunt, pollute, make
roads, and buildings are limited to the village. The last
15 km on the way to Jericoacoara is soft sand, so you
need a 4WD vehicle to get there.
Until the beginning of 1998, electricity was supplied
by diesel generators. Today, there is an underground power
supply, only for the houses. Street illumination still
comes from the moon and the stars.
In 1994, the North-American newspaper "Washington Post
Magazine" chose Jericoacoara as one of the 10 most beautiful
beaches of the world
