“Bad!!”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

I am not sure exactly which beaches we looked at so this is a general comment.

The biggest problem was the vendors. They are too persistent and insist that you acknowledge them before leaving. It is hard to concentrate on a book.

The other problem that they have built very tall apartment buildings right on the beach so there was no sun after about 3pm. There was a lot of road traffic noise as the road was too close and had eaten part of the beach which is often very narrow. The numerous shark warnings made swimming less appealing.

It once had a lot of natural beauty but it has all been destroyed. I would not advise Recife for a beach holiday and it is not much of a cultural destination either. There are much nicer beaches both north and south of the city.
