64 km south of Recife has been named like this, because in the 19th century
it was a clandestine port for the disembarkation of slaves. Porto de Galinhas
is one of the liveliest beaches in Brazil and the most visited in the Northeast.
Here tourists can enjoy the famous tide pools with warm, crystal-clear
waters, home to a great variety of colored fish. Porto de Galinhas is the
ideal place for traditional jangada (sailing raft) trips, which bring visitors
into close contact with nature as they discover perfectly conserved mangroves.
