Boa Viagem Beach, Recife

3.9
#1 of 21 in Parks in Recife
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Boa Viagem Beach and many more Recife attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Recife day trip planning website .

  • I went with my two little ones, and I was delighted with the color of the sea, too beautiful, more in the part that we went is forbidden bathing, because of the attacks of sharks, so we just stare, in a huge heat, lol.

  • Wonderful location very good for walking and pedaling by the boardwalk but not suitable for bathing due to the risk of shark attack.

  • THIS PLACE IS BEAUTIFUL , BUT IS DANGEROUS AND NOT COOL
  • Clean water beach, better during the week to enjoy better the natural pools formed by the reefs. Avoid open sea areas because of shark attack. There are numerous tents with cold beer and caipirinhas. Sea food is available from passing by vendors.
