Brazil beaches is the answer if you dream about golden-sand beaches beneath coconut palm trees, warm blue-turquoise waters and sun all year long.

Brazil boasts more stunning tropical beaches than you can shake your bikini at.

It has the longest coastline along the Atlantic ocean like no other country in South America.

In fact, with 8,000 km. of coastline and thousands Brazil beaches to choose from you are not short of options, and surely will discover one that satisfies your desires and preferences.

Brazilian culture wouldn't survive without a beach nearby.

In Brazil the beach is not just a place to go for recreation or sport, it is a way of life. It is intrinsically part of brazilian culture.

Back in the 1960's they invented the "tanga" (thong bikini), today, we find filo dental ("dental floss") bikinis.
Brigitte Bardot made Brazil beaches famous many years ago, particularly Buzios (not far from Rio), later to be visited by the Rolling Stones among other world celebrities.

From world famous Copacabana (voted world's top ten beach) and Ipanema, in Rio, to the top Fortaleza beaches such as Canoa Quebrada, Morro Branco and Jericoacoara, Fernando de Noronha archipélago, Pipa or Porto do Galinhas (some 60 km. to the South of Recife), in the Brazilian NE, to choose the best Brazil beaches seems to be an impossible task.

And we shoudn't leave out the marvelous coast around Natal, State's capital of Rio Grande do Norte, with places such as Parrachos de Maracajaú, Rio do Fogo or Genipabu beach for instance.

Just recently, the Guardian newspaper (UK) has come up with their own top ten Brazil beaches - April 2009.
