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.

    "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.

    We love staying in praia da Pina. Due to coral reefs form natural swimming pools with fish that is a super attractive to children. And the water is not cold which makes it more inviting still.. lol the prices are super. Is a beach more than people. Had some people using marijuana on the beach but we don't encomada. In the late afternoon we realized we had a lot of garbage on the beach which is quite sad.

    Relatively clean beach with warm waters and small waves, with formations of natural pools. Recommend the coconut water, wonderful site. There are track for walking and bike path. The strip of sand is very generous, however, very taken by parasols of small dealers who occupy the site. The criticism falls on the issue of security, although police sometimes circulate, saw a punk taking a boat on a necklace for a lady and go quick between the passers-by, and have unoccupied requesting a "little help" for vagrancy. Did you hear about shark attacks, but seems to be something very remote and the victims were in deeper water. Sometimes appear "careless person" with loud music that do not respect the environment. To enjoy the beach need to circulate to find a more civilized place.

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.
