    Tranquilidade paradisíaca
    Chamada de muro alto por causa das falésias de três metros que formam um paredão em uma boa parte da extensão da praia.E nesse paredão existem arrecifes que formam belas piscinas de àgua morna e calma.Há uma piscina natural considerada a mais profunda da região com até 10 metros de profundidade.Para se chegar na praia de Muro Alto o acesso é feito por uma estrada asfaltada passando pelo posto policial rodoviário na PE 09 e após passar pelo resort Nanai o caminho só deve ser feito de bugue(por causa da areia)ou caminhando pela areia a partir da praia de Cupe. Alugamos um bugue mas ficamos somente uma hora pois iriamos também ver os cavalos marinhos de jangada no Pontal de Maracaípe. Muro alto é linda mas estava muito movimentada por ser final de semana.Quase não conseguimos aproveitar o tempo combinado com o guia, mas saímos com a impressão de ser um local muito tranquilo fora da alta temporada. Bom preço, bons petiscos(um delicioso camarão no espeto e porção de batata frita bem generosa) e pessoas educadas e gentis.

    Praia paradisíaca
    Lugar espetacular, uma praia paradisíaca que possui um recife que serve de obstáculo das ondas, transformando a água próxima da areia uma piscina natural. Quando a maré está mais baixa é possível chegar a pé. Caso a maré esteja mais alta é possível nadando ou através de stand up ou caiaques. Um verdadeiro espetáculo

Dirty and noisy and ugly, don’t bother going there. The quad ride is short and not fun at all, basically a rip off. The sea is always a compensation, lovely waves.

Calm water. Easy to swim. Safe for the most part. I would go here again. It is not full of tourists especially during covid.

Dirty roads and full of people! it’s not a place that you see only nature. You go through the resorts where stinks of sewage for some reason. The pictures looks great, but it’s a horrible experience. I’m Brazilian and I didn’t like it at all. Went to loads of places in Brazil where I can say it’s worth going but Porto de Galinhas is not a good choice if you want to have a nice day with friends or family. É como ir à Praia Grande em São Paulo, mas de águas mais claras.

My expectations were very high, so I felt disappointed when I found the water not clear and brownish and the beach very small. The Positive note is that the water is very calm, so it is possible to swim safely. Unfortunately the color of the water is not very inviting ...

Firstly, no waves as they is a breaker out to sea. Thee are toilets and showers that you can use. There is food available but quite expensive, and one would expect. The after and warm and super clear.
