  • Beautiful place, very quiet, perfect for watching the sunset. Has a typical bar where you can sit on chairs in the water. It's worth taking a buggy to go there.

  • Delicious, warm water pools form. great for kids. The putting of the Sun is beautiful! There you also makes the ride to see the sea horse, thought pierced! The Boatman dives, picks up the bird and put in a glass with water for us to see! He's all muddy pq hides almost in the mangrove. Loved! 25.00 per person.

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.
