“Nice beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Porto de Galinhas is a nice beach, good for children, with the great attraction of the natural pools on the reef. An experience that you shouldn't miss.

“Can be fun going during low tide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

If you go during low tide, you can walk all the way out to the piscinas naturais...and it's free! If you get there when it's medium tide, you can get a ride on the raft for R20 per person. The guide will show you around, give you food to feed the fishes and point out the pool that is in the shape of Brazil. This is site is not great for relaxing, but it's different enough for you to experience if you're in the area.

“Porto de Galinhas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

I lived 6 mounth in this little village and I still love to go there during summertime. You can surf, take the *jangada* out and see the corallfish or why not try to dive here, it is the paradise and i love the place. You have all from litttle hostels to 5 stars resort complex to chose on here. many many nice beaches around and I belive the only place who have a nicer beach is the paradise island Fernando de noronha

“Check the tide times”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

My tour company marsails forgot to stop At my hotel. So they sent me in a taxi. Instead of arriving at 09:30. I arrived at 10;30. Over half of the tide pools were under water. By 2:00 the beach was gone. The day was a waste. I wish they had offered my money back. The company paid R$150 for the taxi. Three times the amount i paid for my ticket. And to top it off there were tide pools outside my hotel a nice beach and clean pools on Recife Question the time pf the tides
