the boardwalk is a great place to have a beer and snacks

A bit crowded, though. Great place to meet/watch people. I specially reccomend Quiosque Totoró, on the board walk of Cabo Branco Beach, a few miles ahead of Tambaú Beach.

This review will be of more use for historical background, for I lived there all of one summer [Brazilian 'winter' in the 1960s. I have visited the City of Joao Pessoa several times since. Walking south along Tambau Beach going south, one comes to the point, Cabo Branco, which is the easternmost point in the Western Hemisphere, matching a point... More

It's a very nice place to spend the day - lots of alternatives for local food, coconut water and Caipirinhas. The neighborhood is lively, with good restaurants and shops.

We stayed there all day with friends. For a reasonable price, there is food, chairs, shade! The beach is calm with warm waters. Perfect for kids too.

I'm going to be living just one short block away from the center... More

Tambau is one of the best districts in João Pessoa and Tambau Beach is the beach of this district! This means there is no impressive nature around, but you have bars and restaurants close by and there are lots of opportunities to play Beach volleyball, futevôlei or soccer. If you are looking for a beach in the nature, I recommend... More
