Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Amazing Beach especially during low tide. Warm and transparent waters. As nothing is perfect, dirt road to reach, many holes, if it runs the risk of getting bogged down and of course will have the valet Parker to look your car

  • It has a very narrow zone that is beautiful, but the main beach is a world of tables and chairs what are even in the water. We arrived and we went to the 5 minutes

  • I went with my boyfriend on this beach. We don't like sea water, for the coral wall, is stopped, and it seems a little dirty (it was our impression), plus it's very busy. We don't like for this reason because we don't like very jumble of people and like to catch some waves. We had access to the beach through a bugge.

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.
