Cabo Branco Beach is located south of the central Tambau Beach. Its quiet compared to crowded Tambau, Its as clean, or unclean, as those city-beaches in brazil can be. As the bars, restaurants and shops gets fewer the more you walk to the south along Cabo Branco the beach gets quieter with each step you take. The southern end of... More

This is a place that must be visited in João Pessoa. Has training fascilities, the street behind is closed in morning hours for training, and it's a long and beautiful beach with plentiful options and cafees. At early night time it transfers to a nice street where the locals have walk before night time and meetnup with friends. Safe.

This is the eastern point of Brazil and of Americas. This is why the sun raises up very early... in November, it means around 4:40... so be prepared! I'm not a morning person but I'm testify that worthwhile wake up early... specially if you like jogging or running. These photos were taken around 5:30 am, the Main Street is closed... More

Outstanding ambient along the shoreside, with good bars, restaurants, pubs, hotels. Sandy beach, yet not the clearest one.

We rented an apartment overlooking Praia de Cabo Branco while vacationing in Joao Pessoa. The view was breathtaking. The beach was not crowded, but had many beach bars and restaurants. One can take a leisurely walk along the beautiful beachfront sidewalk or cycle on its bike lane. I can't remember the name of the beach bar where we ate many... More

Cabo Branco Beach is a city Beach! This means there is no impressive nature around, but you have bars and restaurants close by and there are lots of opportunities to play Beach volleyball, futevôlei or soccer. If you are looking for a beach in the nature, I recommend the litoral beaches, like Praia de Coqueirinho. Nevertheless, to get to those... More

We spent a lot of time looking out from our apartment over this lovely beach. The further you go towards the end of the beach the quieter is becomes with only a few coconut trees and the occasional coconut water seller. In the morning the whole of this beach is closed to traffic from 5am to 8am and hundreds of... More

Cabo Branco beach in João Pessoa is probably the safest beach to take a toddler and introduce them to the sea, waves and sand. It's also shaded by tall coco palm trees which provides safe playing area for children. Cabo Branco beach is situated at the southern end of João Pessoa beaches on the promenade. Car parking is available on... More
