We lost our breath when we see the sea colour. To go to the pools, you will have to get a small typical boat called Jangada! Then, arriving there the Jangadeiro (Jangada's saillor) will give you some bait portions to attract fishes, beautifull shoals will...More

We enjoyed our visit to "Porto de Galinhas"! The natural pools form when tides become low. Then we can see several species of fish and swim calmly. It is very relaxing and we can see how beautiful nature is. We really have a good time!

Porto de Galinhas is amazing place to visit. The natural pools are simply fantastic. The weather is always hot and the sea water is warm. It's really worth a visit several times.

Locals swear this is the most beautiful spot along the beach at Porto de Galinhas but we were disappointed. It was crowded, noisy and dirty. The water in the ponds was warm.

Great place to snorkel and see reefs with natural pools. Can get busy due to short time window to visit pools that are possible due to low tide. As it can get busy one can see only limited fish. However still a good place to...More
