The north eastern part of Brazil has been recommended for its outstanding beaches in a recent travel article.
A guide to some of Brazil's best stretches of golden sands has been published in the Guardian and several examples are in this region, which may interest potential investors.
Conor O'Sullivan, founder of Tatur Travel Agency, said he recommends the Marau peninsula in Bahia thanks to Taipus de Fora.
"The beach stretches uninterrupted for more than a day's walk in either direction," he enthused.
Meanwhile, Steven Chew, contributing editor for Conde Nast Traveller, suggests Caraiba in Bahia for its peaceful atmosphere and Sao Paulo journalist Douglas Vieira recommends the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha - just off the north east coast - for its excellent snorkeling.
Lauren Smith of Gringoes.com states that Brazil's beaches are incredibly popular with backpackers thanks to the array of cheap accommodation nearby and adds that Salvador is ideal for a laid-back holiday.
