With a rustic and peaceful atmosphere and natural beauty, the beach is perfect for those looking for peace of mind.
You'll be surprised with the dreamy beautiful of Carneiros beach, located in the city of Tamandaré, 100Km away from Recife (~1h:45min). It is one of the most beautiful beaches along the coast of Pernambuco and perhaps even in Brazil.
White sand and coconut trees are present along this lovely and rough beach. Its landscape is framed by the estuary of Formoso River, mangroves, and a reef wall forms natural pools during low tide.
With calm, warm, crystal clear waters, Carneiros beach is pure tranquility, perfect for bathing in the sea and enjoying with your family. The wild landscape was almost unchanged since the beginning of the century, and is one of the key features of this beach which makes it so attractive.
Although its wild characteristics, it has a good infrastructure with restaurants offering tasty food and beverage.
There is a lovely church from the 18th century bathed gently by the waves. The St. Benedict's Chapel has a simple architecture but it gives a special touch to this small paradise.
From Recife, we'll take the highway and drive 100km to the south, until we reach a Restaurant in front of Carneiros Beach (city of Tamandaré) that offers delicious food and has a complete infrastructure to attend you (bathrooms, showers, beach umbrellas, gazebos).
From there, we'll take a Catamaran's tour that will introduce you this splendor paradise, passing through Carneiros Beach, Guadalupe Beach, the Arikindá River, St. Benedict's Chapel, and the mangroves, making two stops in the sandbank (in the low tide) and another in Guadalupe's Beach to try the famous mud bath (and its so-called rejuvenating properties).
After the Catamaran tour, we go back to the restaurant (our meeting point) and you may choose to have lunch, go for a relaxing sea bath or even take a walk over the beach. If you still have the energy to spend you can do stand up paddling, kayaking, or a horse-drawn carriage ride (optional and not included in the price).
In the middle of the afternoon, we'll return to Recife.
