Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach, Porto de Galinhas

(4.1/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A lot of people, little sand! The tents could take over all space. In the water the boats take over! Food man! A total chaos! It's not a place I would recommend for families who want to rest. There are other beaches next most beautiful, empty and cheap to enjoy with the kids!

  • Unfortunately I had a good feeling about this beach. In the past it was very good, but it was crowded and many stalls, unable to walk without being harassed by the waiters of the tents, even had one of them followed, even telling us q q we didn't want to sit down and just walk. I wouldn't go back to this beach.

  • Very nice site, with several attractions, however, as everywhere known, we also have some bad things, like too many people offering chairs, etc.
