Tambaú - 1 Km The Sea Inside, up to the beach Tambaú, there is the presence of reefs coralineos, discontinuous, softening the force of the sea and acting as a natural breakwater that in times of lower tides is called Picãozinho where access is only by boats. Reefs emerge as plateau cut by canals and pools of clear and transparent waters that one can clearly see small fish and crustaceans.
Cabo Branco - Beach of Seixas, Easternmost point of the Americas, where the sun rises first (at 4:50 AM!), this narrow beach is dominated by the Cabo Branco, with lighthouse located above the cliff. This cliff is now threatened by the action of the sea and man..On the beach of Cabo Branco there is a range of limited beaches by vertical walls of cliffs, with an average height of 50 meters, framing the South coast and being formed, predominantly, by reddish color of land, covered by the rest of Atlantic forest, which predominated in significant coastal area of the state. Part of these forested slopes were listed by the Federal Government and are environmentally protected area.

Areia Vermelha: It's not a beach but an island that lies 1.5 km from the coast, located on the beachfront of Camboinha in Cabedelo. It appears only when the tide is low. Its name comes from the color of its reddish sand and it is a paradisiacal quiet place formed by natural pools, fish and coral within reach at the hands. The water is crystal clear, great for snorkelling practice.
