The famous symbol of Canoa Quebrada is engraved on the reddish cliff wall – a moon and a star. Its rare beauty makes it the most famous attraction in the region.
This beautiful beach with a bucolic
climate has magnificent, nearly
untouched scenery with dunes,
coconut trees and mineral water
springs. It is most sought after
for diving or swimming
in the sea.
In the middle of a dense coconut grove and surrounded by cliffs, the fishing village sells handcrafts typical to the region. Don’t forget to pick up the famous small Marjolândia jars filled with designs made of colored sand. To wrap up your day, watching the sunset from the Morro do Urubu is a must.
Aracati Historical Center
Take a walk through the center of town and marvel at the Portuguese ceramic tiles from the 18th century when the city was in the middle of a boom. Many buildings are registered as a Historical Inheritance.
