About Paracuru, Brazil
Paracuru is on the northeast coast of Brazil, in the state of Ceara.
Paracuru Beach has some of the best kitesurfing conditions in the world. The expansive, white sandy beaches give you plenty of room at low tide to launch and rig up your kites, although at high tide much of the beach is swallowed up by the sea.
Out at sea you are spoiled with butter-flat water protected by a reef, which only gets better as the tide goes out, leaving epic flat water conditions within natural lagoons. Equally, if waves are your thing, head out past the reef and enjoy riding waves that can reach above head heights.
The tropical waters stay warm throughout the year, so just bring your board shorts and maybe a rash vest to protect yourself from the sun.
The trade winds blow predominantly from the southeast, cross to cross-onshore, from June through to January.

To say the locals like to party is a bit of an understatement. Roll up during one of the carnivals (February, June, July, September, November or December) to see for yourself.. Most nights, in fact, you will find plenty going on, with music, great food, friendly locals, and amazing sights and smells. If you fancy taking it easy, there are wonderful walks and trails to go on, as well as fishing and boat trips – if you’re not all partied out, that is!
