The Northeast Sights

Ilha de Itamaracá

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

This island is set off the coast of the historic city of Igarassu and has a number of beautiful beaches with calm waters for swimming, as well as a protected area for manatees. The best beach is Forte Orange, next to Coroa do Avião; it has a historic fort that kids love to explore. Buses to Igarassu and Ilha de Itamaracá leave from the center of Recife, at the Cais de Santa Rita in front of the Fórum Thomas de Aquino. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: walking; swimming.

Ilha de Itamaracá Review

Where whole families go not only for the beach as well as tasty and cheap seafood fare. Plan for a full day by the sea.
