Things to do

This long stretch of powdery white sand backed by coconut groves is one of Ipojuca’s most beautiful beaches. Go for a stroll along the Maracaípe Beach seashore and dip your feet in the warm water. Try different water sports and enjoy the scenery from one of the beach bars. Wake up early and watch the sun come up over the Atlantic Ocean.

When hunger strikes, visit one of the bars that spread along the beach. Dine on plates of fresh crab and Brazilian snacks such as coixinha, which is balls of battered and deep-fried chicken. Quench your thirst with a cold beer or freshly-squeezed fruit juice.
