#5 of 9 in Beaches in Recife
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.

  • Has bars rustic, warm water and bath, but be careful. There are holes in the sand and drownings are frequent-especially with children. The sea of green and calm waves can give a false sense of security!

  • 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.

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
