An amazing opportunity to update your profile's pictures!!! Great beach -- calm and clean water -- with good infrastructure -- bars and shower. I recommend to take a very nice walk and do not miss the sunset at Pontal! Incredible!!

A lovely beach where the mangrove meets the sea. There is a small bar/restaurant along the beach with a limited menu and cold drinks. Prices are not that cheap, but it is a beautiful location.

That's a very beautiful place to watch the sunset, mainly for couples, that was very romantic. We made many amazing photos, we got a short tour through the river by canoe and we saw few sea horses.

At this beach at the end of the road from Recife to Maracaipe you will find this beach. It is also known for the thousands of sea horses at the inlet. Definitely a good place to take a stroll along the beach. Many good lunch places along the strip. The waves are excellent for some surfing.

Wonderful beach to see seahorses and crabs. You can take a boat ride to the mangroves, after a dune buggy ride to get here. Lots of small bars for beer and snacks
