Porto de Galinhas is a beach town, the major postcard of Pernambuco state, only 60 km away from Recife. Its natural beauties attract attention of visitors from Brazil and abroad, mostly because of its famous crystal clear waters and the sunshine present almost all year-round. It is easy to take a jangada (local sailing rustic boat) and navigate to the reefs, reaching the "natural swimming pool", the perfect spot to swim and observe the marine life.
At the city center, tourists can find many excellent bars and restaurants, also boutiques and souvenir shops. There are options of accommodations for all tastes, from small pousadas to large resort hotels.
