La plage de Maracaipe est mondialement connue pour son incroyable Spot de Surf qui fait partie du top des meilleurs spots de surf au monde (et au Brésil, donc.) L'accès se fait directement par le village de Maracaipe, facilement. Pas besoin d'escalader ni forcément de 4x4 !
Maracaipe, Porto de Galinhas et toutes les autres plages d'Ipojuca, sont également très connus pour leurs réserves naturelles: L'une des plus belles réserves naturelles au monde.

Maraca - Caming from Recife early in the morning, we spent all day in Maracaipe. Warm weather and water too. Small waves, but fun to ride! This is an amazing beach, worth seeing. It´s just like paradise! I'll try to post some photos
