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.

  • We created a lot of expectations on this beach and unfortunately was disappointed in us. A lot of traffic to get to the site and we do not like. Not worth the distance. There are better beaches in recife.

  • A beach that you can take a nice bath. You can check any boat to go up to the Crown of the aircraft that is very beautiful. For a sea bath worth it.
