Tambaba (115 North of Recife)
Tambaba is north of Recife, just before João Pessoa. It is one of the very few nudist beaches in Brazil, which contradicts the impression of Brazil as a liberal, even sexy, nation. It is quite surprising, given the fact that on a busy family beach its normal to see women wearing little more than a piece of string. It highlights one of the many contradictions you will experience.
Tambaba has quite a few rules and regulations. For example, the beach does not permit single men or male couples; men must be accompanied by a female. However, the beach is definitely worth a visit.
