Muy lindo para pasear al terminar la playa. Yo fui en julio y a las 18hs ya bajaba el sol. Fuimos solo entre semana así que el paseo termina temprano. Es lindo para caminar, sacarse fotos con las Gallinas que decoran la ciudad y comer por ahí. Esta lleno de tiendas de souvenirs con cosas lindas para comprar. También hay... More

Our visit to Porto de Galinhas was just wonderful! Unfortunately just to short !!! Because we would love to have stayed for longer. The beach is clean, the Vila ( Ou Calçadão ) as they call the main shopping road is great and I've never seen streets that are as clean as that!!! Full of shops, bars and restaurants for... More

Porto is how local people call this town that was few years ago number one destination in Brazil. Hundreds of hotels and B&Bs are available. The beach with reefs it's an experience you should try. Lots of handcrafted and tourist gifts are all over the streets. Great restaurants and live concerts on the summer.

Gorgeous water, very clear. Sand is white. If the tide us low you should definitely take the jangadas to see the natural pools, it's spectacular. But there are too many people trying to sell too many things, and begging for money, and dogs. If you like peace, this is not the place. The beach us wonderful, no waves during low... More

The beach offers a tour in the local reef with native sail boats. No motor boats are allowed to navigate around keeping the reef wild life in a better shape (no gasoline, motor oil pollution). Even though, it is a busy attraction where you have opportunity to walk around the natural salt pools, people respect the rules. Please do not... More

This beach has many possibilities. We stayed for a day at the beach. Many people offers you food or a nice drink. It's easy to decline there offers, we didn't feel forced. And the things you wanna try, you can try, like eating a lobster (that's what we did). Snorkeling is also possible but it's not as nice as places... More

We enjoyed this area. We ate lunch at a restaurant by the beach, took a dune buggy around the area, took a boat out to the reef to see tropical fish and then wandered all the cute shops for a few blocks.

It was a long car ride from Joao Pessoa to Porto de Galinhas but well worth it. The special highlight was riding on the Jangada boat out to the middle of the ocean where there were shallow natural pools. The natural pools were full of fish...but also lots of people. The fish were not very colorful but plentiful. Also some... More
