Jericoacoara is a fishing village in the north-east of Brazil. Its name translates as "lair of the turtles". It is an ideal holiday destination for those looking for privacy and silence. A couple of decades ago, there were no vivid signs of civilization at all, such as telephone, television, and roads. Things have changed with the development of tourism. Though it is strictly forbidden to build hotels here — the territory of the settlement is a part of the national park of the same name. There are beautiful beaches with snow-white sand in Jericoacoara. One of them is called Malhada, and it is especially attractive for lovers of chic sea landscapes. They come here to see the Arched Rock, a natural stone gate created by sea waves. It is also a tradition in this village to watch the sunset. To do this, you must climb the observation deck of the lighthouse at the top of the Serrote hill and look towards the Sunset Dune.
