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

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.

This beach is uneventful. Not too crowded, but there are enough people for there to be chairs and food service on the beach. This beach is fine if you just want to sit on the beach, eat/drink and dip in the water.

Amazing place with a wonderful view and a beach that has 2,5 km of a big natural swimming pool. It's better on low tides to appreciate the very calm and hot water. It's worth to stay at least half day. You can reach the big recifes that protect the beach swimming or by jangada or kayak.

Beautiful! Take a buggy and enjoy it! It is awesome for kids and old ones (shallow water). There are a lot of vendors that sell snacks!
