Recife overview 

Far from the fame of Rio and the mystique of the Amazon, sparkles a gem of Brazil’s crown that few outsiders have heard of. Known as the Venice of Brazil, Recife is a fine meeting of the old and the new where Dutch colonial architecture is neatly framed by the slender glisten of skyscrapers. Colourful streets of bleached paves thread through the old town, leading to an expansive sea front of white powder sand and warm ocean water. Recife boasts three public beaches, Boa Viagem, Pina and Brasília Teimosa, each readily accessible from the city centre and generously stocked with cafes, restaurants and nightclubs. And if that wasn’t enough, Boa Viagem is illuminated at night, making it a popular haunt for younger visitors. The city is also packed with theatres, galleries and museums, as well as its fair share of acclaimed restaurants and hotels.

For those looking further afield, no visit to Recife would be complete without making the journey to the comely town of Olinda, just north of the city limits. Having changed little since it was established in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Olinda boasts some of the best preserved examples of colonial architecture in all of Brazil.
