    I live near the beach of itaparica. Its Boardwalk is great and the options of kiosks in old town are here. But I don't recommend diving because the beach is "tombo", with waves very close to the sand, which leaves the diving very dangerous especially for children.

    It is a beach that was urbanized recently. Very beautiful and with many good kiosks. Too deep and with ice water.

    Beautiful beach, with good infrastructure, large tents, promenade great for hiking, running and cycling. Plenty of parking, gym facilities, showers, many gardens along the Boardwalk. Really liked it.
