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.

  • I'm sure I'd go back to this beach. The natural pools are beautiful, my children loved it. Swimming with the minnows is a really cool experience. The rafts are attentive, the tour is quiet to take children (mine were 5 years and 1 year and a half respectively). There is the option to walk to the natural pools, according to the tide of the day, but with children it makes no sense because it gets tiring. Recommend!

  • The beach remains beautiful, undoubtedly one of the best in Brazil. The problem is the frame they made to pluck the tourist. The shops of the shopping center are excellent, it has everything. So far, no problem. The problem my friends is when you go down to the beach: it was totally batched to the barraqueiros with the endorsement of the government, all to make the most out of your pocket. They rent chairs and parasols for $50, but you don't have to pay if you consume a modest goldfish of a minimum value of $85. All encouraged by an association and the city that authorized it. If you take your accessories you won't be able to use, they took the whole beach. I believe that in a few years, this beautiful beach will be forgotten due to greed! The bugueiros ask for $250 to take a walk. But then it's optional, you only go if you want. But the beach, I understand that it is public, but in Porto de Galinhas, Muro Alto they have become private. They're theirs, the barracks and the city hall. I go every year, but 2020 I won't. If we disclose it to all travelers, there may be a change in behavior from the city. We just need to be entitled to use the beach without paying those fees. Ahhhh not to mention that on the street they attack you to "watch" your car for modest $20. It's personal, let's think of other alternatives. Too bad, because many depend on tourists, who are being assaulted in this way. Was...
