Paiva Beach, Recife

4.3
#3 of 21 in Outdoors in Recife
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.

  • When I was reviewing you after so long, I remembered when you stretched the white sand so I could land my plane like a bird in search of shelter! You were lonely and so did I. But nature completed us and stretched the mantle of the colourful afternoon of Twilight red. Now you're ripe and so am I. You have welcomed families into their dwellings, climbing into the heavens in beautiful buildings. Until soon beautiful beach... You look beautiful as always.

  • One of the numerous beaches of the northeast coast and Pernambuco. Beautiful, great for a walk with the family and enjoy with friends. It is not popular as the neighboring port, but it is worth it. Quieter.
