Experiences in Recife

Recife boasts a wide variety of activities to see and do. A trip to the neighbouring small town of Olinda, peppered with vibrant colonial structures, cobblestone walkways, and charming churches, enables you to fully appreciate the region’s rich heritage and culture.

The area is also home to some of Brazil’s most breath-taking stretches of shoreline for those looking to unwind on the beach. Due to its soft sand and clear waters, Boa Viagem Beach is a favourite among both tourists and residents whilst Porto de Galinhas, famous for its natural pools, and coconut-tree fringed Praia dos Carneiros are two other ideal spots for the sun-worshipers amongst you!

For those seeking a City tour with a difference, exploring the rivers and canals of Recife by boat is a unique experience.  A boat tour will take you through the picturesque waterways, providing a different perspective of Recife’s architecture and culture. Another popular activity is taking a day trip to the nearby island of Itamaracá, where you can enjoy stunning beaches, take a boat tour to see dolphins, and visit the historic Forte Orange.

Finally, no visit to Recife would be complete without indulging in the local cuisine. The city is known for its delicious seafood dishes, such as moqueca and camarão na moranga, a shrimp stuffed pumpkin!
