Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach, Porto de Galinhas

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.

    Great to buy handicrafts. Good restaurants. Much choice of bars, pancake, sweet. Many "stalls" offering products made by them.

    For sure this is the best and most beautiful attraction of Porto de galinhas. Was the only investigator who was worth it. I recommend that you take advantage of all of the town of Porto de galinhas and your beach that is very beautiful. Go in the natural swimming pools and stay tuned to the tide should be below 0.4, just so you can enjoy the beauty of the natural pools. Make the crossing on foot inside the sea, it's better than going d raft. The rest of the rides do only if you have money left to spend.

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.
