Itamaraca is a tropical island in NE Brazil, an hour’s drive from Recife International Airport, with a long road bridge connecting it to the mainland. Most of the island comprises protected forests, but on the ocean side are miles of long white sandy beaches, mainly fronted by weekend holiday homes of the elite and wealthy of Recife. All kind of beach and watersport activities are available on the island.
After visiting 193 countries, Anthony Asael and Stephanie Rabemiafara, international photographers and Manga Verde Beach Residence Managers and Partners and developers, call Itamaracá one of the most beautiful and peaceful places on earth.
With a resident population of some 21,000, island numbers swell in the summer months and at weekends, as tourists are drawn to the warm, calm sea waters, protected by a reef two miles offshore. Being a small city in its own right, Itamaraca has a hospital, police and ambulance stations, bank, post office, pharmacies, hotels, numerous stores and supermarkets, and dozens of bars and restaurants.
With a history dating back almost 500 years, a wide range of delicious seafood caught locally, and covered in fruit trees, 13 beaches, kitesurfing school, you would expect island prices to be high… but you would be wrong.
