“Stunning”

PG and Maracaipe beaches must be up there with the best in the world. Warm, clear water; reefs; bikinis. Just beautiful.

“Night life and surf!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Great beach to surf. I don't recommend it to people that don't know how to swim properly. The night life is the strong point here.

“Amazing Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

It's a great beach for surfers and a lovely place to walk and hang out and chill. A lot less crowded, busy and touristy than Porto de Galinhas where it can get really annoying to be in the crowd on the beach. But you cannot really swim in Maracaipe, too dangerous because of the waves and the currents.

“Don´t go if you are not a good surfer”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

The sea is not friendly. It is very hard to stay in the sea because of the high waves. Prefer the other beaches around, specially Muro Alto.

“A Surfer's Point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

A little way from the central beach of Porto de Galinhas, the waves are higher and the sea is "angrier" , which makes a perfect place for surfers and keeps families with children away from the place. Needles to say it's a less visited place, so it's cleaner and both accomodations and food are cheaper than in Porto de Galinhas.
Mostly you get to see it in the Ponta-a-Ponta buggy ride, on your way back from Pontal de Maracaípe, but usually is a stop for lunch and you don't get to enjoy the beach.
