Know this paradise!

Porto de Galinhas is a well-known beach in northeastern Brazil. Its fame is mainly due to the natural beauty: pools of clear and warm waters formed between corals, estuaries, mangroves, white sand and coconut trees. Located in Ipojuca, 60 kilometers from Recife, it is one of the most visited beaches of the northeastern coast.

Formerly, Porto de Galinhas was called Puerto Rico, due to the extraction of Pau Brasil, a tree that contains red paint. When slaves arrived to be sold, they were hidden under crates of dʼangola chickens. The arrival of the slaves at the seaside was announced by the password "there are new chicken in the harbor!". Because of this, Puerto Rico became known as Porto das Galinhas. Hence the name Porto de Galinhas.

In addition to being frequented by tourists (and most Brazilians), who admire the beauty of the beach, Porto de Galinhas, is also very frequented by surfers from Pernambuco, as it is one of the main surfing spots in the region. With beaches such as Cupe, Muro Alto, Borete, Cameroon and Maracaipe, and still very close to the beaches of Carneiros and Serrambi, another famous surfing spot in the region.

Porto de Galinhas is the vision of paradise! And it's not an exaggeration. There are seven continuous beaches, from Camboa Beach, through the beaches of Muro Alto, Cupe, Porto de Galinhas to Maracaipe and Pontal de Maracaipe. The natural pools are unforgettable, with their warm waters (average of 28ºC / 90ºF) and crystal clear, which become true aquariums, formed by coral reefs.
