how to get There

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.
