With wide sidewalks and full of small shops, guarantees a special charm for this place. Avoid weekends and holidays because Porto de Galinhas gets crowded.

High season. Hot! Extremely hot! And a lot of people! The beach is beautiful -- clean water, nice sand, nice beach bars... but it was quite crowded.

A safe place where we can enjoy the wonderful sea and beach without any security issue. Good for walking at sea side. Negative points: crowd on the week-end and too much approach for excursions. We were there last week november. We were told to be lucky because there was not so much people.

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

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
