Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach, Porto de Galinhas

Due to its landscape consisting of estuaries, mangroves, coconut trees, and abundant nature richness, Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach is famous for being one of the most beautiful beaches of the Brazilian coast. You'll find plenty of entertainment by day and night at dozens of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, luxurious hotels, pousadas, and shops.

You can charter a boat called a jaganda, or rent a kayak or canoe to ride out to the natural pools created by 6.5 km (4 mi) long reef formations. These calm pools are great for snorkeling in the warm waters full of unusual plants and tropical fish. The rocky formations formed by coral reefs can be sharp, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear. These reefs are the closest to the coast in all of Brazil, making it a popular and developed beach setting. Your timing has to be perfect if you want to swim in the pools because the reefs are only available at very low tide, which occurs for only about two hours a day.

  • If you want tranquility, you better get someplace else. Lots of noise and a lot of people even out of season.

  • It's not what I expected, it's a big spa, it has very close pools but there's a drain down the main street that seems to go towards the pools, the sea water is changed at high tide every day but there are crowds of people everywhere , many medium restaurants, not much hygiene, if many souvenir shops and crafts few, are rather standardized, live music is varied, but little pernambuco. Good place to have base and tour all the beaches as it is the one that has more infrastructure, but it is not romantic, very poor circulation all the streets are blind and there are only two in the opposite direction but to go back to a place almost you have to do the whole route of nu Evo.
