Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach, Porto de Galinhas

(11,000+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Due to its landscape consisting of estuaries, mangroves, coconut trees, and abundant nature richness, Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach is famous for being one of the most beautiful beaches of the Brazilian coast. You'll find plenty of entertainment by day and night at dozens of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, luxurious hotels, pousadas, and shops.

You can charter a boat called a jaganda, or rent a kayak or canoe to ride out to the natural pools created by 6.5 km (4 mi) long reef formations. These calm pools are great for snorkeling in the warm waters full of unusual plants and tropical fish. The rocky formations formed by coral reefs can be sharp, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear. These reefs are the closest to the coast in all of Brazil, making it a popular and developed beach setting. Your timing has to be perfect if you want to swim in the pools because the reefs are only available at very low tide, which occurs for only about two hours a day. A visit to Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Porto de Galinhas trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • Praia da Vila de Porto de Galinhas is sensational! Has the natural pools that are beautiful ... has the rafts and several places for a great meal.

  • The beach is beautiful too, but has many rafts that take to the pools, so I think it's not the best place to take a shower. However, restaurants there in centinho, which are very good, but it's nice to walk in and see the crafts and other things.

  • Went to the reef? Be sure to book at least a day to visit port. Colorful city and well structured, has a beautiful beach and a mandatory trip to Pernambuco.
