Boa Viagem Beach, Recife

(3.5/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
Palms and gardens line the upscale avenue in the Boa Viagem Beach neighborhood with a beach by the same name that's popular for young 20 or 30-something travelers. The beach and parks offer many sports such as tennis, volleyball, football (soccer), and personal training with free equipment. As one of the most visited beaches in Northeastern Brazil, kiosks furnish comforts for you to rent such as chairs and umbrellas for enjoying the crystal-blue waters. This neighborhood has many outdoor cafes, restaurants, and a lively nightclub scene, which is its signature draw for tourism. Be aware that the neighborhood and beach has many people that ask for money or goods while you relax on the beach--especially if you look like you are spending a lot of money. Swimming and surfing is not recommended, especially after dark because aggressive tiger and bull sharks swim throughout these waters.

  • along the Av. Boa Viagen of van happening an after others different beaches urban, ones with more amplitude of sand, others with more reefs coral, others equipped with baths public, and/or with equipment and appliances to do gymnastics. ... in the end all nice, each with its particular attraction. To me the more I liked is the home of the Avenue; It has a large expanse of fine sand and several natural pools. Also not there is so much amount of sellers Street as in the beaches chic of the 4,000 of the Boa Viagen, also them umbrellas and armchairs are more cheap! , consuming a bottle of water mineral (R $ 1) already had right to a deck chair. Very important: all the beaches are maintained X lifeguard! Recife is area of sharks, we must be respectful of cartels that exist in all the beaches: do not bathe in sea. Respecting schedule of tides. Do not use swimsuits with glitter etc... To the evening when climbing the tide us sat in the sand and we deleitabamos with ones rich Matt...

  • This time of year the Boa Viagem beach is a great option to start the day at 5 A.M. the Sun already tell that came but the temperature is almost all day around 26° celsius kept a constant wind from the sea. And so goes all night! The contrast of very tall buildings (some with 40 floors!) and the beach that continues a plan into the ocean is a special attraction. But watch out for the sharks in the sea. I'm serious!
