“ruined by construction”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Used to be one of the loveliest spot near Recife, now over developed including some very ugly structure. The port view at the background doesn't help much either.

“Best beach of Porto de Galinha's region”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

The sea is calm and good for swimming. You also have a lot of options for water activities. The service there is good and the people are friendly. The beach is calm and has much fewer sellers than Porto de Galinhas, making the place much more pleasant to stay. The prices are also cheaper than Porto. Te natural pools are nice to see, but you can't swim there (one of the only drawbacks of the beach). It also lacks bathrooms at the beach.

“overrated”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

We took a quick walk on the beach, lot of rubbish spoiled the view. people can bath in the warm water, but honestly we were not tempted. the view of the industrial plant nearby is disturbing. it is not possible to walk in the beach ithout having to pass through the tables ad parasol. I enjoyed much more to walk in other beaches in porto de galnhas...

“Calm waters - good for kids - avoid barraca da ana”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Water is great - calm (due to reef protection) and warm.
Barraca da Ana is terrible - worst service ever. Slow.
