There were a lot of positive feedbacks but I can't agree. It must have been once a very beautiful place but now you have on the right a lot of new ugly houses under construction and on the left the industrisl harbour. On the beach you are among thousands. In the water all the fish has gone. Its a pity... More

The beach would be nice with a natural pool, but paying 80 BRL to get there is not worth the money. If you are not at one of the resorts in the south you will be among too many people and every 2 minutes someone will try to sell you stuff, the whole experience is really for those who like... More

Fuimos en un paseo de Buggy, recorrimos Porto de Galinhas de punta a punta y el último lugar fue la playa de Muro Alto (llegamos cerca del mediodía). La temperatura del agua es calentita y calma y da para nadar hasta el muro y caminar sobre el. Si van a hacerlo aconsejo llevar calzado. Hay barracas con sillas y sombrillas... More

Me and my girlfriend went to the lagoon during our stay at Porto de Galinhas. Worth it, especially if you have a car. Very special.

Muro Alto is a natural miracle, reefs made a longer than a mile reef barrier that protects the beach and creates a wonderful salt water swimming pool. Mansions, Five star hotels and condominiums that will fill your dreams. A must see and swim place near Recife.

This beach is protected by coral reefs so there are no waves. Very calm water, good for children. They have kayaks you can rent to get to the coral rocks. You climb up and can walk around the natural pools. I was able to swim to it without a kayak. There are too main restaurant/bars here. We spent the day... More

Very beautiful beach with calm waters due to the wall that doesn't allow waves to arrive on the shore. The only problem is that the place doesn't have a bathroom or a restaurant to have lunch .
