The Sands Of Northern Brazil

The beaches of Brazil are admired all over the world and at home. Brazilians love spending time with sand beneath their feet, tucking into a caipirinha or enjoying an intense game of volleyball. Given that Brazil has more than 20,000 miles of coastline, it is little wonder that the beach pervades the national psyche. Beaches are romantic, immortalised in song (Copacabana and The Girl From Ipanema spring to mind) and can dominate the atmosphere of a town or city.
