  • The beach is beautiful and yields good pictures and memories. Minimal infrastructure, don't expect luxury or sophistication. To get to Galinhos, starting from Christmas, are almost 3 hours. Long and tiring trip. Don't do it again, because there's not much to do and see.

  • A place for those looking to relax at sea. Right across, turn off the continent. Carriage rides, boat, recommend your beauty (Baptist). The city is beautiful, the people are super nice, good places to eat all kinds of food--a place for those seeking tranquility. Few places accept credit cards, so bring cash. Oh, the water is brackish, so if you're going to highly paranoiar with hair and skin, mineral water expenditure increases. But waaaaay worth knowing.

  • The municipality is poor and does not have any infrastructure. The beaches has nothing out of the ordinary. However, I've owned garbage collection system and the place is infested with flies, making it impossible to grab a beer or even eat something by the infestation of flies. Prices are abusive and comes charging in euros.
