Very calm and small beach. Not very easy to park there, but totally worth it. Not recommended for people with severe disabilities, because you have to walk a steep path to get there (there are handrails though). There is a zip-line with a beautiful view.

The place is harder to get to by car than i expected. It´s a nice beach but a little run over by the restaurants, which spoil the site a little. The food is good though, and folk are friendly.. and the waves are huge.

It is not a large spread out beach, but it is a quant beach with beautiful views of cliffs, rocks, and a small sandy area. It is surrounded by forests and palm trees. Be advised the road to the beach is somewhat treacherous and probably...More

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!

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....More

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...More
