Welcome to João Pessoa


The 20km-long beachfront, stretching north and south of the central coastal hub of Tambaú, is agreeably clean, low-key and low-rise (no buildings above four stories allowed) while the historic center, 7km inland, is being slowly spruced up after attaining National Heritage site status in 2007, and makes for an interesting wander. All in all, João Pessoa, or ‘John Person’, is a very nice spot to break up a journey.
