Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • We arrived at the 9:00 Beach and was already packed! A few kiosks and few options to eat! The water was very dirty, with many algae and cloudy color. Not worth spending the day on this beach, go to Muro Alto, there you will be amazed!

  • Located on the North coast of the beach, does not have as many charms. The best areas for bathing is in rio and in depth. In need of tents and bars on the beach, I advise you take whatever you need.
