Overview

Introduction

60 kilometres south of Recife lies Porto de Galinhas, a small resort very reminiscent of  the informality of nascent Greek resorts 20 years ago.

Three stupendous beaches, Muro Alto, Porto de Galinhas and Maracaipe (renowned to surfers throughout the world) and a small informal fishing village full of restaurants, cafes and bars create a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. Most of the roads are still unmade and the local fishermen will take you out on their traditional Jangadas to view the millions of fish on the coral reef that protects the white sand beach of Porto de Galinhas. With good food and fabulous beaches, this is a first-class base for visiting Recife, Olinda and other parts of Pernambuco.

Accommodation in Porto de Galinhas

All the hotels we feature in Porto de Galinhas have a commitment to excellent service with a variety of styles. All offer beach buggy hire, surfboards, horse riding, Jangadas, kayaks and canoes as well as excursions to local places of interest.

The food in Porto de Galinhas is fresh, tasty and different. Local specialities include: Fish with cashew nuts, octopus Moqueca (a stew made with fresh coconut milk) and king prawns with coconut. If you are feeling less adventurous, churrascaria restaurants serve barbecued meat - as much of it as you can eat. The waiters just keep coming round and filling your plate unless you tell them to stop. Prices for a Churrascaria meal can range from £5 to £10 per person.

Pontal de Maracaipe
For swimming that is sheltered from the Atlantic breakers, it doesn’t come much better than this. As the tide comes in it creates an inlet surrounded by golden sand as far as the eye can see. Ferries will take you across if you have somewhere to go but this is a great place to stop and relax.
