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.

  • 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.

  • Very Nice And wonderful day .in murine alto.
  • Quiet and close to a great tourist spot. Also has hundreds of options for hosting.
  • The beach is very good, excellent and calm shallow for children, but access is horrible! There's only one point of access by car, super streets. Narrow stools, getting there you're hostage to pay a parking lot and there's no vacancy in the sand to set up your own beach umbrella and chairs. Also the peddlers of Pernambuco are unbearable, you can only have peace when you're in the water.

  • The beach is beautiful and very quiet, perfect for children in almost every excerpt, thanks to natural protection of the reefs, which gave rise to the name of the beach. However, unfortunately some constructions of concrete walls and local condos resorts are transforming the meaning of the name "muro alto", because they are preventing the passage of bathers at high tide, as more and more buildings are advancing on the track of sand. Not to mention a concrete wall in the coastal area does not seem very appropriate, since this framework can further increase the erosive process from the beach.

  • Very beautiful beach, there is the encounter between the water that comes out of the river and sea water, when the tide is full and the sea water and let the cold and crystalline water. When low tide there prevails the river water, gets a little more cloudy and warmer. In the middle term you feel water on some hot spots and cold at the same time.
