Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Due to its landscape consisting of estuaries, mangroves, coconut trees, and abundant nature richness, Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach is famous for being one of the most beautiful beaches of the Brazilian coast. You'll find plenty of entertainment by day and night at dozens of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, luxurious hotels, pousadas, and shops.

You can charter a boat called a jaganda, or rent a kayak or canoe to ride out to the natural pools created by 6.5 km (4 mi) long reef formations. These calm pools are great for snorkeling in the warm waters full of unusual plants and tropical fish. The rocky formations formed by coral reefs can be sharp, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear. These reefs are the closest to the coast in all of Brazil, making it a popular and developed beach setting. Your timing has to be perfect if you want to swim in the pools because the reefs are only available at very low tide, which occurs for only about two hours a day.
