    Swim at Boa Viagem

    We stayed at Boa Viagem, and took there most of our swims. The beach is long but not spectacular. The long reef along the coast protects from surf and sharks, but risks to make the bath very monotonous, specially in low tide, when it becomes almost a pool.

    People throws everything to the sand, but the local authorities make a good effort to clean it each day. The beach closes very early - at 5PM, but at 6AM it's already a pleasant bath.

    Boa Vista is a bustling area with much to see and do. Take the time to stroll around the streets and pick up a local paper. Having a local paper tucked under your arm is a good defense against hustlers, even though you will still be easily identified as a tourist.

    Boa Viagem Beach

    Boa Viagem

    The beach at Boa Viagem stretches over 8 kilometres, lined by high-rise buildings, palms and dunes. There is nothing better in life than chill in a beach chair, have a beer eat some grilled shrimps, check out the scene while you listen to some great tunes. Boa Viagem has plenty of that.

    Boa Viagem- The wealthy Boa Viagem district provides a good home base. This waterfront area is Recife's real center, possessing both the city's finest beach and a wealth of fine restaurants. Much of Recife's nightlife is here, as well as in Graças. From there, the old city can be explored as well.
