Praia do Pesqueiro


Praia do Pesqueiro is Soure’s most popular beach, a broad swath of soft beige sand, backed by thatch-roofed restaurants. Pesqueiro is about 12km north of town, but along the way you can spot buffaloes wallowing in marshes and catch a glimpse of Marajó’s lush interior. A moto-taxi runs R$20 each way, while cabs charge R$50 for up to four people.
