Paiva Beach, Recife

4.3
#3 of 13 in Parks in Recife
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.

  • A great option to escape the full city beaches, located right near the city of Recife, worth spending an entire day. A jaw-dropping visual with all Beach surrounded by Palm trees.

  • Like the beach of P because it is close to several other with several types of spikes. Have you guys surf and you stay in the sand looking, but the front has itapuama, in sequence to the beach pedra do xareu which is glued with gaibu. So I can have a great time at this location. I always go with friends and family.

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.
