  • Galinhos Beach still preserves the simplicity and rusticity that are features. Has major and minor comfort hostels, as well as restaurants and bars. But the Fort of Galinhos is its natural beauties and the feeling of living in a village of sand streets, living with chariots pulled by donkeys and a scorching sun. Drinking water is very brackish water, but the village has groceries and grocery stores with all the food and cleaning products that you need. The boat ride is one of the best attractions of Galinhos. There are many cruise offerings, which follow by mangroves, salinas and stops for tasting of fresh oysters, obtained on the path, by the boatman. Galinhos is an ideal tour for those who love Sun, sea of green water, Sun, heat and enjoy the simple life of a village.

  • The transport until there is via boat, 3 real cheap. The rustic experience starts from there. There's no night attraction. Switch off and enjoy the nature. (Don't get too sign 3 g)

  • We stayed a night in this Village. We took a boat to reach the island. We pay 3 reais per person, children up to 5 years do not pay. The village is small and has many horses that defecate in the street which is disgusting. Most of the streets are of sand ... the place is very hot, but it's beautiful. I liked there. We had lunch in a restaurant facing the sea and the food was good.
