Maria Farinha Beach, Recife
(3.1/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • Is a reasonable Beach, an extensive sandbank at low tide. I don't know if it was the place we chose, but it has a lot of algae in the shallows that embarrass the legs lol.

  • Great beach to visit in the North Coast. You can find excerpts with bars and also quiet stretches, without bars. We found sellers passing with the best bobó de camarão of the metropolitan region of Recife. Visit this region.

  • Located in the municipality of São Paulo, just north of Recife and Olinda, this beach is simply charming. In the evening, the sunset produces beautiful effects in the landscape.
