We are staying in an apartment on Bessa Beach and love our view every morning. The water is warm and refreshing. Love this spot.

Bessa Beach is located in the northern part of Joao Pessoa, an easy twenty minutes walk along the shoreline or a short taxi ride away from the more central Tambau Beach. The coastal road is running a hundred or so meters inland from the beach, so its nicely quiet compared to the much busier Tambau. Bessa beach is pretty busy... More

This beach hasn't got a road along the beach, which means less people, less commerce and more nature, in the middle of the town....loved it!!

This is a really nice and beautiful beach. Easy to choose if you like the more crowded spots with restaurants, or you bring your own chair, parasol and book. Perfect to relax, for families as well as singels. A must if u are in jp.

If you are visiting Joao Pessoa, you have to visit the beaches in Bessa. This is the place to go, especially in the weekends. However weekdays in my opinion, is the best(less people). WOW

Beautiful, peaceful, wide sand strip, calm waters. Before anyone disagrees I will make a remark that Bessa beach extends for kilometers so you have to look for the best spots as in some areas of the same beach you might find some strong waves (during high tide), rocks, etc. Anyhow, to me this is THE beach to go in João...

Bessa Beach is a urban beach of Joao Pessoa with clean water. It placed near Meg Shopping Center. It is a beach without the tipical coral banks of the region. I was during a morning on it. It is possible to find little white crabs on the sand known as "tatui"

Beautiful beach, limited access means it's quite and peaceful a great place to while away a few restful hours. good choice of restaurants within walking distance, public transport runs along the main road behind the houses and apartments that are privileged to have a toe hold in this location. I love it here.
