Easier to get to with an excursion. The guide will advise you not to take the walk to Pedra Furada if your physical condition is less than good, and you should take it. The fluffy sand makes it challenging to cross the path alongside the waves, there are a few small rocks to climb, and the sun can be unforgiving.... More

If you’re in Jeri, you have to go see this, but time your visit to the low tide so you have time to get a good photo. You will have to wait because it’s full of tourists who aren’t always the most conscientious. Don’t do what I did—you could trek here along the beach, but it’s far and treacherous, having... More

It 's necessary to take a walk about 2km to reach the place (round trip). It 's not that difficult, even for aged people and kids. It's a rock that was carved by Nature until it was shaped like this, with the great hole in the middle. It's interesting but do not expect a cine setting. If you don't want... More

It's quite a long walk through sand and loose rocks from where our buggy dropped us off. I expected it to be larger to be honest, but it was good to see.

it's a little further than we thought at first, you either have to walk, take a buggy, or in our case we took a horse driven "chariot", which is totally worth doing! Great experience! Then on our way back we walked on the beach, which was a little far but totally worth it! You can't do that on high tide... More

You go through a food grinding sand to get there, stand in line, and it is not very impressive. Not worth it.

Its a cool thing to do in Jeri, the only problem is, everyone does it so its rammed packed with tourists and selfie sticks. I personally recommend either going really early in the morning or late afternoon around sunset. I think sunset is a better shout because most people tend to head to duna do por de sol.

The buggy takes you near there and then you walk for 20 minutes under the heavy sun. Great place. Then walk back more 20 minutes.

On the first day I went to visit this famous rock, but on the third day I've convinced a boat man to go for a trip and I saw the rock on its back and it's even more gorgeous!

Despite being of one of the attractions of Jeri, this tour is crowded and it is not worth it. You will not take a pictures alone. There will be a lot people trying to do the same thing of you. Good luck!
