PORTO DE GALINHAS

Porto de Galinhas is a coastal town in the municipality of Ipojuca, in Pernambuco. Porto de Galinhas is a small beach town, very popular as a weekend getaway for people from nearby Recife. The area is stunningly beautiful with amazing reefs. Hotels range from cozy "pousadas" to five-star resorts. Do not miss nearby Maracaípe.


Porto de Galinhas has a bustling beach town in summer, lots of dining places, local "churrascarias" (barbecue) and good seafood. Lots of beach activities in the area. 


Amongst them, visits to the "piscinas naturais" in a jangada, a local raft tour to the nearby reefs, where sea water makes natural ponds, and lots of different fish can be seen. If lucky enough you might attend a sea turtle birth at full moon in midsummer, plan for a full moon stay.
