Meeting a friend in Recife, or Stella Maris beach in Salvado

I have traveled to Recife, Olinda, and Porto de Galinhas before and enjoyed the trip. I will meet a friend next month in Recife or Salvador (Stella Maris). I prefer to meet in Recife, and then go to the nearest beach like Porto de Galinhas to swim and ride the waves. Anybody familiar with these two areas, and views on the better place for a 5 day visit. It will be a vacation for relaxing, and would prefer relaxing situations on the coast.

Thanks.

what beach are you calling the "swimming beach"? Praia da Vila (the one here in TA link below)?

Thank you very much for the recommendations! I believe we will stay at one of the pousadas you both recommended. We both like all of those pousadas, it is hard to decide!

we will just take a ride into Recife the city if we want to go to the city, but we decided to stay at the beach Porto de Galinhas....
