Muro Alto Beach, Porto de Galinhas

The name of Muro Alto Beach derives from the "High Wall" of natural reefs about 2 km (1.2 mi) long, which form a huge natural pool without waves. These high reefs surround the beach forming a natural swimming pool without waves. These calm waters allow you to rent a kayak or canoe to explore the wall. Resorts, hotels, and Pousadas (Bed & Breakfasts) surround the area, as well as kiosks selling snacks and craft souvenirs.

  • Very different from when I was 5 years ago. The beach was polluted. I went to stand up to the reef and had several dead fish. I can't tell if I was unlucky by the day I went. But it is very sad to see this image of a beautiful beach.

  • On my visit (March) the tide was media, but even so the Beach had your beauty and was quiet.

  • We stayed in a hotel (Flat Marupiara Muro Alto) at first our plans were visiting other is Muro Alto Beach would be just to sleep, but the beach is simply beautiful. A huge pool of warm transparent waters and with many fish on the reef. In my assessment with high walls was better than Praia da Vila. Recommend this beach.
