A great beach in North East Brazil offering cafes, shops and some English language activities like amateur and pro scuba diving But it’s very busy and suffers from too many on beach cafes

It’s good place to go with family to enjoy the beach and the small town with good reataurants. Anyway could be a good headquarter to move to the places around like praia do carneiros, Maragogi, Pontal do Maracaipe.

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.
