For me it was the most beautiful beach at the region! Blue water with white waves landing at the white sand. Unforgetable!

Good only if you want to walk along the beach. It's open sea, so you cannot swim. The other beaches of Ipojuca / Porto de Galinhas are much better.

We visited in late June early July 2018-the beach is wide with milder waves for the area, but nothing spectacular.

Not only because of the nice resorts offering all you need but also because of the atmosphere the beach brings. Good waves, sandy beaches without any of the dirt you find at beaches like Boa Viagem. Walk for an hour along the beach to the...More

Yes the sea is a bit rough but that means less people and kids (no ofence...). Ideal to relax, sunbathe and read your book. When and if you feel like a bit of the buzz, Porto the Galinhas is certainly the place...
