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.

  • We found the beautiful beach! Very calm and at low tide you can see the fish! Few people at the scene the day we visited, it was wonderful! Does not have a lot of infrastructure and the price charged by the keepers of parasol is salty, but they help you with what they can. We were on the beach right next to the hotel Nanai and there's not a lot of people selling things, or are you all oportunado moment!! Worth knowing and spend the entire day!

  • The sea looks like a pool. Transparent and beautiful. The best place to get on the beach, and the street that borders the hotel nannai. Better go on the beach by day of week, on weekends it gets crowded with people that dirty beach. There are people who rent Chair/beach umbrella on the beach. Also has a food tent.

Where to stay in Porto de Galinhas

You can't walk more than a few steps along Porto de Galinhas' coastline without bumping into yet another hotel or bed and breakfast. As befits the best beach in Brazil, five-star hotels and beach resorts abound, offering all the luxuries you'd expect. It's not all glitz and glamor, though; you can find plenty of budget options in the form of small inns and guesthouses, which come in varying degrees of quality and cleanliness. If the town's touristy center seems a bit much, look to the northern and southern edges of town, where you can find beachside accommodations in a quieter setting.
