Nature is at its best in this village, where you can also find various species of shellfish, migratory birds, manatees and seahorses. Nowadays, Cajueiro is very popular among kite-surfers and offers all the charm of a dynamic village combined with a sensational environmental setting.
The origin of its name comes from the large number of cashew trees (= cajueiro) present in the municipality. The first inhabitants were the indigenous Tremembé who left a great cultural and artisanal heritage in the region. When they departed, fishermen from Ceara settled there dazzled by the beauty of unspoiled nature and they found vestiges of the native artwork, which allowed this craft to continue. The Cearenses who came to live in Cajueiro da Praia, developed agriculture and fishing. It was in the 2000s that Cajueiro da Praia grew and the first local inns appeared brought on by the ideal conditions for the practice of kite surfing, attracting an international clientele.
