Itapuama Beach is just after you pass the exit from Paiva. For me it is one of the best beaches in that area! The water is clean, warm and they have little huts where you can get "caipirinhas" Also you can sit under the umbrellas and enjoy the heat!!!

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.
