Pina Beach, Recife

2.4
#7 of 9 in Beaches in Recife
Considered one of the most popular destinations in the city, Pina Beach has a large coastline and pleasant climate. It is one of the places most frequented by tourists during high season. Take the opportunity to relax, take a refreshing dip in the sea, play sports, or ride a bike along the path. The trees along the waterfront with stools to sit on provide nice shade as an escape from the sun. Although the currents here are pretty strong, you can take your kids because of the reef that does not give them the opportunity to reach the bottom. Kiosks selling coconut water, cold beer, and other goodies provide refreshment options. A visit to Pina Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Recife travel route app to plot your vacation.

  • In times of low tide to walk into the sea or even stay on top of the reefs by watching the landscape. However, in times of high tide can increase the risk of shark attack for being an open ocean beach, according to the residents. Feeds off the beach, because food and water are pretty expensive.

  • "Poor Cousin" of Boa Viagem Beach, Pina beach is frequented by a more popular audience. It is located in the neighborhood of the same name, alongside the traditional Boa Viagem beach.

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.
