Utterly known as “Bride of the Sun“, this Brazilian state has the most picturesque beaches you’ve ever seen. Not only is it the ideal sun-and-surf destination but like the country itself, it has a rich culture worth exploring.
Compared to overrated summer spots like Creta, Lloret Di Mar, Marrakech and so on, chances of bumping into your neighbor will be extremely small. Since this low-key getaway is still to be explored by the masses.
Just imagine your summer-self on a quiet beach with a local food plate filled with sun-dried beef and cassava fries on one side and refreshments on the other.
Best time to travel: the first weekend of December during Carnatal. Brazil’s largest off-season Carnival.
