I liked the place but it was a big deception, because I was imagining a perfect sand island, with clear beaches and crystal clear water... nothing of these at all... Precarious and not nice restaurants. Good to walk and and do some sea shells beachcombing, but far away of being extraordinaire. This is one of these cases when pictures are... More

This is one of the most beautiful beach in Pernambuco. The water of the ocean is warm and inviting. There is an old fort on this beach that nowadays has craft stores inside it. The beach has white sand and it is a perfect paradise. Try to do not go by yourself because there are cases of robbers in the... More

IF you'll stay on Recife, you spend so much time on the high traffic road to arrive on Itamaraca Beach, but the beach is worth it, and rent a boat not only to lead to beach (crown of the plane), but to see the mangroves (birthplace of the crabs).

It is a very beatiful beach, but remember that you can´t reach there without same kind of boat, there are many for rentals just there when you arrive. It is a lovely tour

Cleaner than others local beaches, fantastic service and great seafood dishes at Bar do Beto. Price is average for recife, but he offers lots of free food and cachaça to his clients

This beach is one of the point you have to go if you stay for a week in Recife. It is a small isle where you reach by small boats (or motor canoe). That care because water currents are strong.

We went there with boat and its a really little paradise island without any light. Little bars who sell good fishmeals but really expensive plates in my opinium but a 1 liter beer for 4 real is a good price heheheheh

This is one of the most disgusting beaches I've ever seen. It was completely covered with garbage: flip-flops, plastic bottles and caps, plastic bags, shoes, cans, etc. I wouldn't dare go in that water or walk barefoot around there. And, I would NEVER return. There are too many CLEAN beaches in Brazil to waste time on this rubbish dump.

This beach is simply fantastic. I t is soooooooooo beautiful, with its white dunes, pools in the sea, virgin trees. If you wait for the low tide, you can walk in the sea for metres and metres and the water still barely covers your knees. I regret a few problems. First, you need to pay some "smart" jangadeiros (small boats)... More
