Caribbean, amazing views and close to the city, can be quiet or loud, find your favorite area. A lot of other nice beaches walk distance also.

Gaibu and Calhetas are beautiful, clean, safe, great for family vacations or day trip from Recife. You can have dinner cooked on spot to go with your beer, just talk to the ladies in the barracks.

Ver Quaint place. Much more than the other beaches. Beautiful protected areas and ruins around! Near the capital, it takes around 40 min to get there. I heard the surroundings have been a little dangerous lately, after they developed the oil business there!

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.
