Our dune buggy stopped here for lunch. There were a few restaurants (quite literally) in the beach. You can have your lunch whilst sitting in the water. You can swim out to the reef or take a kayak - we just sAt and relaxed.

There are very few options for food and drinks, unless you are a guest in one of the VERY EXPENSIVE resorts surrounding the beach. Otherwise, definitely a place to visit if you are in Porto de Galinhas.

Beautiful beach, but with a lot of people at the beach bars. Good for families because of the calm waves.

We took a buggy ride to Muro Alto, and it was very beautiful! It's not the most beautiful beach I've ever been to, but it's definitely worth a visit. There were little crabs on the sand, which were very cute.

Go on the low tide, amazing experience, especially if you have small kids as water is nice and warm and at knee level.

Nice, warm and clean water.Clear and vast sand.The sun is always present. Perfect for pictures, walking and running. There are some nice hotels around where you can eat and have some tropical drinks.
