No doubt: the best place to visit, better than Porto de Galinhas. I'll be back soon... You can reserve 1 day only to stay there: lots of activities. The boring thing is the high number of sales offers: hats, clothes, all handcraft stuffs, etc.

awesome beach. Im from California and this place blew my mind. Friendly people. Don't be afraid of what the American media says about crime in Brazil (At least in this town there aren't any thugs to worry about). Just like anywhere else though, if you look like prey you'll become prey.

The beach itself is super pretty and there is certainly a lot to see in the water. The truism unfortunately brought into that beach too many independent sellers of all kinds of products: bracelets, music, instruments, art, henna tattoo, etc. What makes it a little inconvenient when you have someone offering you something every 2 minutes. Other than that, the... More

Beautiful but it is not prepared to receive tourist. You can get a cab is more reasonable then Bug or jeep. Get all your meal and sandwiches to spend the day around it worth go early and get back in the afternoon avoid bugs they are not fair price or service.

The beach is beautiful, some resorts and big hotels in the area. Not very crowded, so you can enjoy with privacy

This beach was less crowded than the main beach of porto de galinhas. The staff was very friendly and the food was yummy. We rented a kayak twice and it was really fun. Only R$10 for an hour, definitely worth it. The wall is filled with little tidal pools full of sea life, and a lot of urchins!! It was... More

Nothing is wll kept and maintained in Brazil. No infrastructure for foreign tourist. But they try to take too much money for everything.

Muro Alto is nice, but it's not that amazing, apart from the novelty of swiming in a natural swimming pool. The water is very murky, so no good for snorkelling. It's a good walk to do, from Porto, 14km if you're feeling sporty.

Did not care for it, seemed ok, not much to it other than a wall protecting the beach. I iguess it would be a good beach to go with infants.
