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... More

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.

This beautiful small beach is surrounded by hills and one can take a walk from Gaibu to the rocks to the hills to down the hill to arrive at the beach – take a few snacks at Arthur if you feel hungry & thirsty! Recife youngsters enjoy to go to this beach on week-ends, but may be tiresome and troublesome... More
