    Hi Leahrae, You have put a lot of work into this website, showing the variety of beaches to suit anyone’s preference. From the popular beaches to the more secluded ones; the sandy ones to the ones just at the edge of the mountains. There are windy spots for surfers as well. When traveling opens up more, we will probably be doing more traveling as well. All the best!

    All of these beaches look absolutely amazing. I really like the mountainous look of them. The cities look like they are all built right on the edge of the mountains. The beaches look as nice as those I saw in Hawaii. My wife and I are looking for a place to go to celebrate our wedding anniversary, this may be perfect.

    I do not see anything about the fishing do you have any thing on this? The web site is very easy to read and has a great amount of information about the sun tan and sand. I live in the panhandle of Florida so I can sure relate to this.

      I live in Florida as well Walt 🙂  Only I’m in Clearwater.  I try to focus more on beach activities, that are water sports related or the history of the town.  If the area is big on fishing, then I generally will include it, like for example in Cabo San Lucas.  Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me comments.

    These beaches sound fabulous!  I love the fact that many of them don’t have roads or towns near them.  It’s always so peaceful on a quiet beach.  I would love to take a hike through the jungle to get to Lopes Mendes Beach.  Having said that, though, I think I would spend most of my time at Copacabana Beach.  I love the hustle and bustle of people and shops!

    Hi Leahrae, what a great post!

    I’ve never been to Brazil but his post has put it on my bucket list! Have you been to many of these places yourself? Which place would you recommend for a romantic holiday? My partner and I are hoping to go away next year and Brazil just hit the top of our list!

      Any of them would be great 🙂  I just think Spain in general is a great place for a romantic getaway.  I have been to the southern most beaches as I have family there.  I really need to go back!  I am glad you enjoyed your visit to beach travel destinations.  Thanks for stopping by.

    Wow, these beaches are gorgeous!! Coming from a beach bum myself, lol.   You inspired me with your post this morning.  I love the turquoise blue colour and white sands and I’ve been deprived since Jan 2020 when I was last in Tulum, Mexico.   I’ve never been to Brazil and it’s always been on my bucket list.  Thank you again for the great share with your post.
