Paiva Beach, Recife

#3 of 16 in Outdoors in Recife
Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Lined with a grove of coconut trees, Paiva Beach is a relatively private beach that is becoming a hotspot for high-end real estate development. However, the beach itself is a secluded strip of sand under a never-ending blue sky. Use caution when swimming, as sharks populate some areas during certain seasons, signs are posted to warn visitors when a shark has been spotted. Don’t fret, because it is a perfect spot to catch up on that tan or enjoy the book you’ve been meaning to read. Bars and restaurants, from casual to reservation-only, are located nearby to quench your thirst and soothe your rumbling stomach after all that hard work sun bathing. Make Paiva Beach part of your personalized Recife itinerary using our Recife road trip planning site.

  • Heading South, you'll find "Paiva Beach". Not easily reachable, better go with friends or locals, or both. Palm trees, blue sea and clear waters ... A beach hut sells freshly cooked fish and drinks...  more »
  • Bath water, great sand, very quiet and people selling freshly caught prawns! What more could you ask for?  more »
  • Beautiful beach. Lacks of a better structure like public bathrooms and services.
