Not much to say really. Does what it suggests on the tin. If you want busy and carnival atmosphere go Copacabana.

A little less impressive beach as compared to Boa Viagem Beach, infrastructure needs be more developed! Tourists may visit for 3-4 hours to watch & study cultural traditions and eat local taste of sea food!

I was shocked when I visited this beach near Gaibu PE. Every fifty meters it has a sign warning of sharks. It has many beautiful homes and has become a sort cut for cars going from Recife to Porto de Galinhas and south.
