  • This was one of my favorite beaches in the Northeast, wonderful indeed. At low tide has many natural pools and you can see the fish in the crystal clear water. Agrdável water temperature.

  • Almost deserted Beach, super clean. Is close to Porto de Galinhas. Super calm and transparent sea, form a natural pool for the kids! There are keepers of parasol that charge a fee for you to use Chair and table, but only 10 reais for the use. Access to the beach is backed by a restaurant, but only 10 actual payments for parking.

  • Beautiful, quiet beach, we get day of low tide, where we go to the natural pools, clean water and to see the fish. We had lunch in a restaurant with a fair price and good food with beach umbrella on the beach. Recommend the beach, look!

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.
