From north to south, there’s a huge variety of beaches in brazil at the paradisiacal destinations, from the most secluded and wild, to the most popular during the summer season. These postcard scenarios attract tourists from Brazil and all over the world every year, from January to January. Due such variety, it is possible to plan different tours, according to the characteristics of each traveler or group: beaches for those who enjoy adventures, for those who want to go scuba diving, for those who are looking for calm waters and relaxation, beaches to go with children, to party and so on.
