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've been twice in Muro Alto, because it really is a very special place, with a natural pool of crystal clear water, with a special service, which must be visited. The sunset is beautiful this place

  • bad, bad road beach. The beach is crowded and with little infrastructure. To get to it you have to trick them a dusty dirt road (very much). for those who go to the region, it is best to pursue other options.

  • And a beach of standing water and does not have a color very nice, the attraction is the Very that surrounds forming a half moon, on the fence form small piscininhas where you can observe some of the marine life. Nothing special, as in others, beaches we can see the same things even better.

  • Quiet and close to a great tourist spot. Also has hundreds of options for hosting.
  • Calm and transparent waters, beautiful scenery, great parking lot (20R $ in 01/2018 Backyard Bento). Food at a price equivalent to good restaurants. Great service especially to John Vero tent. Between the port of Suape and Cupe Beach and around Porto de Galinhas. Access on the road of compacted as it is environmental preservation area.

  • There are several resorts, but the beach itself is not very good for swimming. She's pretty, but a little agitated. When the tide is dry you can view some swimming pools between the stones, but watch out for hedgehogs. There is almost no option of bar on the beach, since the resorts dominate, but there is the beijupira restaurant next. In short, it is a beach that will serve more to those who are in resorts that those who want to walk there from another location. There's not much place to park too.

  • Natural pool. Do sports practice (rent the equipment). But you have to arrive early to get a table (don't pay the table just q. Food tasty and well seasoned) Paying the parking lot they ask if you want complete with bathroom (5 reais, and the bathroom is clean and with shower).

  • Excellent beach! No waves, calm waters, with a good variety of kiosks and a structure with parking, bathroom with shower and private parking. In my conception is one of the best beaches in the NE.

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.
