Amazing!!!

It was my first time in Porto and I am sooo in love with this place. Was there only for a day. We took a buggy ride tour to beaches nearby and they were all just as pretty.

We arrived at 9am and headed straight out on a small boat. We walked on the exposed rock to see the fish trapped in the pools, then had a swim with the fish. Back at the beach we enjoyed the amazing views and beach snacks.

We were there for 4 days,very quiet beach.Make sure you take the local boats (jangadas ) that will take you to the natural pools (a must see),lots of food shops on the beach (barracas),some of them serve really good food and cold beer but be careful do not overpay, ask them for the menu and check the prices.

The staff very friendly. The breakfast was amazing, a lot of choices. Nice pool and a private beach....very high waves and perfect for... More

The beach was highly recommended. I expect a more tranquil pace. Its very child friendly because of the small waves. A little overrun with tourism, but generally worth the visit. And well worth taking the boat ride to the natural pools in the middle of the ocean.

This was my third time at Porto de Galinhas, what a beautiful place this is, one of the best in the north east of Brazil. The water is fabulous and you may want to get there at low tide so you can catch a "jangada" a typical boat from this region that takes you into the natural pools in the... More

One of the most beautiful beaches un Brazil, if not the world! Coral reefs, sailboats, dune buggys and great lobster and fish restaurants add to the charm and beauty.

a beautiful beach, with clean sand and transparent emerald water. You can do a ride on a "jangada" (Djan-ga-da, an wooden boat sailing), visit a natural lake and feed the fishes (only at low level tide). But the beach has a lot of commerce, stay prepared to say "no".

We spent half a day there during the last world cup. The town is nice to walk and shop. The beach was amazingly clean, friendly locals and the small "sail" to the reef was worth it! We visited during the last World Cup and the atmosphere was extraordinary. Everything revolved around soccer. Put your valuables away in a locker (local... More
