Brazilian beaches

With a long coastal line, most of it in intertropical zones, Brazil has many beautiful beaches.
Several major Brazilian cities were built by the sea, like Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Natal, Fortaleza, Recife and others; in all these cities, the tourism infrastructure is well developed, with plenty of hotels, restaurants, transportation, etc to serve the tourists.
Besides these capital cities, several other medium and small towns have nice beaches. Some are well established tourist resorts, with most of the infrastructure found in the bigger cities, like Camboriu and Porto Seguro; some are smaller cities, where the overwhelming beautiness of nature compensates for the shortage of a few facilities; and some others beaches still preserve much of the wild life, making the lack of services look like an advantage.

Below, some links to Brazilian beaches.
