The Northeast Sights


  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

Situated 109 km (68 miles) south of Recife, this beach region shares the same calm, warm waters and natural pools as Porto das Galinhas, yet lacks the crowds. The postcard-perfect Praia dos Carneiros is regularly elected as one of Brazil's best. Its brilliantly clear emerald waters are home to shoals of tropical fish, and the beach huts there serve fresh coconut water and seafood snacks. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; snorkelling; swimming; sunrises.
