Maria Farinha Beach, Recife

(3.1/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Situated between the Timbo River and the sea, Maria Farinha Beach extends for four kilometers of fine, white sand, fringed with palm trees and mangroves. The calm, clear waters are perfect for practicing water sports, even if you are a total beginner. Try windsurfing, kayaking, scuba diving, and jet ski, or take a boat trip to the 'caravels'--small sand bars that form natural pools filled with colorful fish. The nearby Veneza Water Park will delight children and adults alike. Use our Recife family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Maria Farinha Beach and other attractions in Recife.

  • the headland is wonderful and some specific locations are great to stay with the family as close to the paradise of waters.

  • Quiet, good to play with child. The only problem is the Sargasso. To get in the water there are a range of about 15 m of Sargasso. But after the Sargasso ends and the bath is nice.

  • We were not on the beach, but we were in Venice water Park that gets it. Good for those who do not want to go the beach. Great toys for child and adult
