If you are not staying on the resort's in this beach do not waste your time coming in here... Not clear water and close to a port so also not very clean ...

Close to busy port and maybe that's why the water is not very clean. Also lots of vendors and the beach bar people trying to make you take a seat at their place. Not very relaxing even though it's the further away beach from Porto de Galinhas. Prefer the other beaches in the area...

This beach is very beautiful and peaceful. We really enjoyed our vacation in this small town. The beach was clean and not crowded, on the day my husband and I visited. There are areas to take really beautiful photos. If you need some rest and relaxation, this is the beach to go to.

Clear, calm and warm water, just perfect for a romantic celebration with your significant other. It is a must in the Northeast of Brazil.

for adults can be a little bit boring. Too much commerce (people selling different stuff - anyoing, crowds, very warm water and strong current.

Although The beach is really nice, it ia very noisy, crowded, expensive and lots.of guys shouting and trying to sell you whatever. Don't recommend to go there, you can find better views in Serrambi or better activities in Maracaipe.

This beach was very nice, and it's definitely a place you have to visit and see for yourself, but you have to be careful not to leave things unattended as people won't hesitate to take things away very, VERY quickly. It's one of the issues of tourist spots in Brazil I suppose.

Good beach to swim, water is really warm. this beach is protected by a coral wall that's why it looks like a swimming pool but be careful with sea urchins.

Muro Alto is an extraordinary beach, almost private for those who are at the resorts in the area. The water is warm, however you should be careful with the coral reefs, because of the sea urchins that are very common there. Almost at the end of the beach there´s a very nice area in front of Nannai Resort Hotel where... More
