An incredibly beautiful beach and when you walk to the right hand side another beach joins and the water surrounds an island which can easily be reached on foot. Very picturesque.Large hotel nearby and plenty of small stalls selling drinks and food.

Nothing wrong with it, but you can find better in Brazil. On the plus side easy access, somewhat sheltered if you are looking for a quiet spot of surf. On the downside, can get really crowded, and also well with the city limit so the...More

Guaruja has some good beaches and, probably, Pernambuco beach is the best. Good for swiming as qualitty of the water is always good. If you can bring chairs and sun umbrella it will help you.

Twice a day two parts of the ocean join around an island. It's something rare and amazing. The water is clear and not too rough. The only problem is the Hotel Jequitimar that closes part of the beach as if they own it. Parking on...More
