   Individuel holidays in the golden North-East of Brazil

Region & Travelling

Recife`s most beautiful beaches are located out of town, to the south and north.


Our municipality belongs to the commuter belt of the bigger and better known cities Olinda and Recife in the state fo Pernambuco, one of the country´s major tourist areas. The distance to the old town centre of Olinda - one of Brazil´s cultural centres - is just 15 km, and it’s approximately 23 km to the capital and metropolis Recife. The international airport “Aeroporto Internacional do Recife” is only 33 km away.

The most beautiful beaches are located out of town, to the south and north. Where we are, in the north, in Paulista you will find the beaches of Janga, Pau Amarela (closest beach to our guest house), Nossa Sra. do Ó and Maria Farinha.

Our neighbouring district Maria Farinha is a popular summer holiday spot with a beautiful beach. The sand is fine and white, the palm tree skirted beach invites for swimming. Here the sea is ideal for all kinds of water sports. At low tide small boats, yachts and jet skies can anchor right at the beach. From Maria Farinha boat trips are offered to the mangrove swamps and other beautifulbeauty spots, i.e. the neighbouring green island of Itamaracá. Also located in Maria Farinha is one of the nicest leisure and water-parks in the north-east, the Veneza Water Park.
Who wants to try something different to the more simple bars and restaurants of the area or who misses the flair of a big city can take the bus or the car to get to Olinda (approximately 10 min away) or Recife (30 min). Both cities offer a variety of cultural and leisure activities and have a bustling nightlife. The manyl dance- and music events, discos, bars and seaside taverns, restaurants, shopping malls, museums, cinemas and theatres should be enough even for high demands.
