Farol do Serrote, Jericoacoara

Lighthouse · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Step off the beaten track with a visit to Farol do Serrote, a lighthouse standing as the region’s symbol of remoteness and isolation from the world of screeching car horns and electronic billboards. Not just a remnant of the bygone days, this lighthouse is still in operation. Due to extreme shallowness of these waters, vessels often need careful guidance as they approach the shore. To preserve the area’s timeless quality, artificial street illumination is still forbidden by local law, which makes the lighthouse a necessary beacon of light for seafarers and villagers. You can stop by to watch the sunset from here, or stay late to see boats returning home after long days on the sea.

  • If you visit this lighthouse, be sure you will see one of the best view of Jericoacoara area. But to reach the top, you will face a huge dune.  more »
  • We visited this lighthouse as part of a tour. I don't think we would have done on our own. The views go on for miles - but not everything you see is "beautiful".  more »
