Good beach to visit. The height of reefs help create pools that don't disappear during high tide. Water is a bit colder than other Beaches with natural pools. Not too much fish to see compared with Cupe Beach and Natural Pools of Porto da Galinhas. Still a good option to visit once other pools have disappeared during high tide.

One more destroyed paradise beach.
I can't understand the Brazilian way when they go to the beach? They gadering thousands people on a small spot, having food and drinks enjoying their self. In the afternoon they throw all garbage in the sand. Praia dos Caneiros is dirty! There is two big big restaurants or Moore like amjusmentparks where all thousands of people is packed toghter like crowded fish.
There in between on the beach is some sandy spots but they are private.
Don't waist a day here if you don't like thousands of people, unfriendly staff non English spoken at the restaurant and dirt.

I don’t understand other reviewers complaining about the difficult access tand at the same time the excess number of tourists on the beach! One should be prepared to put some effort to get to a hidden exotic gem rated as the world’s best beach which understandably won’t be readily available at your doorstep.
When my friend and I were there, we were the only people on the beach and it was surreal! It was February, just after the rain, still very hot and the wet weather didn’t stop us from going down the metal steps between the cliffs. The natural surroundings are absolutely gorgeous, same goes for the water and the best part was the lack of people. Absolutely thrilled with this beach and won’t ever forget the experience!

The touristic attraction of this river is mainly the possibility to do Water Sports like jet skype, canoeing, etc... but you can also do some cruzes on the river, and even go up to the lake. For the ones who want it more relaxed there are a lot of good places to eat along the riverside.

I read the advertisements: largest outdoor Amphitheater in the world with 9 stages. But I had no real idea what that meant...9 stages are 9 Theaters to real life scale...envision chariots racing in front of buildings, Pontus Pilate trying to reason with Jewish priests, to Christ not only crucified, but resurrected into the sky in a plume of smoke. Amazing. The woman in front of me was sobbing, it was all so real.
Be prepared to walk a lot to the nine outdoor Theaters which are quite separated (there is excellent wheelchair service and special viewing areas). Be prepared for crowds. -- 5000 to 10,000 a night ( Monday is the least crowded). Be prepared for excellent acting. Be prepared to be immersed in Christ's last days.
You can still feel the drama if you don't speak Portuguese. Headsets are available, but not everything is translated, and since I knew the story, I preferred not to use them.
This may be a once in a lifetime adventure...don't miss it, and if you come from another country, it's worth planning your trip the week before Easter and immersing yourself in this drama that is so powerfully enacted.

This great Benedictine monastery was originally built in 1582 and the interior is nothing less than dazzling. The rich wood carving is overlaid with gilt or silver-gilt of the most ornate decorative patterns, all with intricate religious themes. The carvings of the Madonna and of the Saints are intriguing and quite inspiring. Sunday Mass is regularly celebrated in the Gregorian-chant manner at 10.00 am.

A 2015 Travelers’ Choice winner, Cacimba do Padre is famous for seashells and soft sand. Jutting out from the sea is the Two Brothers (Morro Dois Irmaos) rock formation.
We stopped here while on tour in the island with our guide. It's a beautiful view but the ocean is just too strong for regular swimming. If you don't surf, you might just be better off watching the suffers and tanning. Still, it's a must see. There are good places for lunch nearby.

I visited Francisco Brennand's studio as part of a shore excursion from Recife. Francisco Brennand is a contemporary sculpture artist in Brazil. His studio is set in an old roofing ceramic tile factory that belonged to his father Ricardo. This studio is quite large with several buildings of this works.
A lot of his works are abstract beings involve the female bottom and phallic symbols. I've attached pictures so you can make your own judgements. We were only allowed to take pictures in the outside areas of the compound.
