Located in an area of environmental preservation, it is a small village with only 10,000 inhabitants which has been known by tourists for only a short while. Jericoacara stands out for its majestic beauty and perfect conditions for Kite and Windsurfing.

Jeri, as locals call it, is one of the longest beaches in the world, surrounded by dunes and fresh-water lagoons, which attract visitors in search of peace and quiet but also offers great winds for sports activities. The contact with nature is intense as well as the sense of liberty the place seems to offer everyone because everything is so wide and ample.
