Coast of Conde on the South Coast of Paraíba

The south coast of Paraíba has more than 60 kilometers of beaches with clear waters.

In one of them, tourists can be completely at ease, without clothes, in one of the few naturist beaches in Brazil.

The South Coast of Paraíba has paradisiacal and often deserted beaches. They belong to two municipalities in Paraíba: Conde and Pitimbu.

A great advantage of Paraíba in relation to the other states of the Northeast is the short distance between the beaches and the capital. You can visit the most distant beaches in the south with only 1 hour of travel.

To get to Tambaba, it takes only 30 minutes. The roads are asphalted, in excellent condition and with good signage.

In the region, the coast of the municipality of Conde, a town 17 km from João Pessoa, is a must for those visiting the state during the summer.

In the municipality of Conde you can find the scenery that is considered by many as one of the most beautiful of the coast of Paraíba, the Finger of God.

The cliff located between the beaches of Tabatinga and Coqueirinho, two of the seven existing in the coastal city, allows the visitor to have a full view of part of the coast of Conde.

Tambaba beach

The famous beach of Tambaba, part of it reserved for the practice of naturism or nudism. It has an impressive ecological reserve with lots of greenery.

The area for naturists is on the other side of a simple wooden bridge, which can only be crossed by naturists.

With strict laws and rules, following the Naturist Code of Ethics, listed on a large sign at the entrance to the bridge.

Among other restrictions, unaccompanied men and those who don’t intend to take off their clothes completely are not allowed to pass to the naturist side.

On this side of the bridge: a short stretch of sand, large reefs in the sea, a few stalls serving snacks and drinks, including the traditional coconut water, one of the state’s sources of export.

Leaving Tambaba for Coqueirinho beach, the indication is to consult a receptive tourism agency and follow accompanied by a tour guide, as the paths have very similar accesses and can be confused.

Praia de Coqueirinho PB

The beach of Coqueirinho refers to its name.

Along the entire length of the closed bay, coconut trees line the shore. The calm, crystal-clear waters allow you to see the natural gravels that blend with the clear sand.

The right side of Coqueirinho is suitable for surfers, there the waves break with denser and more imposing formation. From above, the beach is even more beautiful. This view can be seen from the viewpoint named “Dedo de Deus”.

Built in the middle of the cliffs, the Canyon Coqueirinho restaurant is a separate attraction that is worth the visit and the delivery to the seafood stews and fish moquecas.

But the spotlight is on the combination of fried soft crab and cajá caipirinha.

From Tabatinga to Carapibus, the next two beaches, you can risk a walk of about 30 minutes.

This, a little busier, has some tents serving as shelter for a brief stop, or to enjoy a “laziness”.

There you can also check out the Mussulo Beach Club, a support point of the resort that is two kilometers from the sand.

Guests of the resort have a free pass and are highly pampered with tasting snacks and “sipping” the most varied cocktails and drinks.

Continuing the tour, Jacumã beach is the most urbanized in the region.

Jacumã Beach in ParaíbaCommerce, even timid, has developed around the old huts where fishermen lived. Restaurants and bars have also sprouted up along the sand and the promenade.

With many reefs, Jacumã beach is suitable for swimming, as it has calm waters, resembling a cove.

The next stop is at Praia do Amor, symbolized by a large pierced stone. Legend has it that couples who pass through the middle of the stone, eternalize the feeling and never separate.

The place is practically deserted and inviting to lovers seeking moments of relaxation and tranquility.

Praia de Gramame PB

The meeting between river and sea takes place at the bar – Barra de Gramame – providing an incredible visual, which divides the waters and, when the tide is low, forms a huge sandbank.

At low tide, the depth decreases considerably and some brave people cross from the beach to the sandbank.

In one of the tents in Gramame, a picturesque curiosity, Mr. José, owner of the establishment of the same name, trains guaiamuns, a relative of the crab, which come to pose for photos in the hands of tourists.
