Went to Muro Alto in a rental car and parked in a shaded area but be careful because the sand and if you don't have 4 wheel drive you could get stuck but there are guys to help for a price of course. I loved the beach and how calm and warm the water was. The deepest the water gets... More

The warm and quit water are nice and good for seniors and kids. Many resorts for rich people. The public acess isn't good.

Dark water, not very welcoming for swimming. Poor selection of restaurants/bars and hard to get in and out.

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.

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
