Located on the northern edge of the Ceará state, this once sleepy fishing village has fast become a hotspot for keen windsurfers and kiteboarders. The municipality is also home to Jericoacoara National Park, which showcases the region's sweeping sand dunes and windswept beaches. For a stylish stay and Brazilian feasting on tap, bed down at boutique property The Chili Beach. Days are best spent snacking on local delights at the in-house restaurant, while sunsets are even more glorious when viewed across a live DJ set at the hotel's private beach club. We're booking our one-way ticket for May, when the winds subside and the area's shimmering turquoise lagoons are surrounded by hammocks.
