Paiva Beach, Recife

(4.3/5 based on 800 reviews on the web)
Lined with a grove of coconut trees, Paiva Beach is a relatively private beach that is becoming a hotspot for high-end real estate development. However, the beach itself is a secluded strip of sand under a never-ending blue sky. Use caution when swimming, as sharks populate some areas during certain seasons, signs are posted to warn visitors when a shark has been spotted. Don’t fret, because it is a perfect spot to catch up on that tan or enjoy the book you’ve been meaning to read. Bars and restaurants, from casual to reservation-only, are located nearby to quench your thirst and soothe your rumbling stomach after all that hard work sun bathing. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Recife holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Paiva Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Place of high luxury and beauty ... it's quiet, as it is not very frequented, is a place even if we have a break. ...

  • I was so in love with the place, we stayed at the home of a couple of friends could relax a bit coming out of everyday life.
