Boa Viagem Beach, Recife

#1 of 17 in Parks in Recife
Beach · Nature / Park
Palms and gardens line the upscale avenue in the Boa Viagem Beach neighborhood with a beach by the same name that's popular for young 20 or 30-something travelers. The beach and parks offer many sports such as tennis, volleyball, football (soccer), and personal training with free equipment. As one of the most visited beaches in Northeastern Brazil, kiosks furnish comforts for you to rent such as chairs and umbrellas for enjoying the crystal-blue waters. This neighborhood has many outdoor cafes, restaurants, and a lively nightclub scene, which is its signature draw for tourism. Be aware that the neighborhood and beach has many people that ask for money or goods while you relax on the beach--especially if you look like you are spending a lot of money. Swimming and surfing is not recommended, especially after dark because aggressive tiger and bull sharks swim throughout these waters.
