Porto Galinhas

how to get There

Porto de Galinhas is without doubt among the best beaches in Brazil. This amazing beach changed from a fishing village to a popular destination for Brazilian travelers, who are mesmerized by its beauty and convinced by the average level of the infrastructure that has developed the beach, offering good accommodation options and maintaining the natural state of place.

The history of the name of the beach is very interesting. In the 19th century, the Brazilian government banned the slave trade, which was very common in Recife before. Thus, hackers had to create a solution to keep bringing slaves to Brazil, and then began to deliver slaves deserted beaches such as e Ipojuca Suape. When the “black ships” (the name given to the ships that traded in slaves) arrived at the port, to avoid suspicion the coded message was “no new chickens on the beach,” meaning that the chickens were obviously slaves; hence, the beach became known as Porto de Galinhas.

Porto de Galinhas offers over four miles of stunning white sand, palm trees and clear water. Its length allows, even in high season you can find a quiet place alone to enjoy the beauty of this beach.

The inn Canto do Porto is without doubt one of the best lodging options in Porto Galinhas. Its location stuck excepecional sea, excellent rooms offering every imaginable service, Personal care provided to their staff and tasteful decor make this one of the better hotels in Porto de Galinhas.

In Porto de Galinhas, no big hotel chains. The largest hotel concept is not suitable for this type of beach, so you will not find here the big hotels that abound in Brazil. The interesting thing about the beach of Porto de Galinha is that there are many hotels in the city center, but you have to consider that in the middle of the night there are many festivals and bands playing in the streets. The downtown hotels are cheap and if you want to be in the middle of the party, is a great option, but if you are looking for peace and quiet, you should go to the inns distant from downtown.

The inns have a great comfort level, and most of them are decorated in a very tropical, well used space and are usually very close to the beach. It is not difficult to find a room with a sea panorama a very reasonable price.
