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.

  • We were in the winter, and even out of season, was full. But despite that, it was cool. Has it all: street artists, hippies selling jewelry, crafts, several shops and many restaurants. Has it all and for all budgets. What fills her patience a bit, people are offering packages and/or restaurants.

  • Main beach of Porto de Galinhas, is located in the Centre and it is possible to raft ride to the natural pools (wonderful!) when the tide is low. It has bars, restaurants and stalls in the sand, where you can find several types of meal. Is the busiest in the city, including itinerant trade. Even with the high tide, the sea is still calm.

  • A point at Porto de Galinhas! Very good beach, so low the tide it is possible to stay at sea peacefully ... is it possible to go canoeing the natural pools. The only thing is that there are a lot of local businesses and is full of people around, but nothing!
