Review of Praia de Calhetas

I love Calhetas!! It's about an hour's drive from Recife and is really the easiest of the "Postcard" beaches in Pernambuco to reach... further away is Porto de Galinhas... Calhetas has a couple of little barzino's with really fine food... it's a protected cove with pristine water, surrounded one side by huge boulders and on the other dramatic cliffs. You can hike up the cliffs and get an incredible vista overlooking the sea from the top. A great day trip. Beware that the last couple of miles of road is pretty rough! But, it's worth it.

This beach is even more beautiful when you look at it from the above -- you can do it along the access road.

This is a small beach. It should be much better to enjoy it during the week, when there's much less people there.

Access road is dirt but that’s no big deal to reach the beach.

The beach is too small and the sand is thick. The restaurant has a nice food, but the service is extremely slow and inefficient. The bathroom is clean.
Don't get the service of "Luck Receptivo" (the main travel agency of the region), it's very expensive and they fool the clients.

On weekdays at least. Ideal for families with children, who don`t mind driving all the way to this beach. Food and drinks might be expensive at the restaurants nearby.
