Local AreaThe local area is beachfront. Cabo Branco is the upmarket beach resort of the city of Joao Pessoa. Unusually for seafront Brazil it is low rise. There is a promenade that runs the length of the bay and is great for an evening stroll. In the early morning traffic is diverted for the general public to use the promenade and beach road for jogging, roller blading, walking etc... There are beach volley ball nets, and opportunities for football and other sports.
The beach is dotted with bars and restaurants to suit all budgets. There are also food shops, take aways, internet cafes and ice cream parlours. Ten minutes walk brings you to Tambau where boats leave to visit the ocean reefs offshore for snorkelling and swimming.
