Aesthetically, this is the nicest beach I have ever seen. However, as others have chronicled, sharks may provide buzz-kill for actually using the beach. If you are in Recife on a nice day, certainly worth a stroll.

There are a lot of sports activities. Unfortunately there are very few cafes along the way. The place feeld quite save, we took long walks along it. There are some people enjoying a swim but the signs of "sharks" kept us out of the water.

If you stay here, it is nice to see the beach, but unfortunately here you can find sharks, so it is not a good ideia to entry in the sea. If you can just walk around the sands, it would be ok.

Boa Viagem is a neighborhood in the city of Recife, Pernambuco in the privileged southern zone of the town. Not good for swimming due to the sharks, and there are warnings all along the place
