Porto de Galinhas
Everything in Nordeste (Northeast) of Brazil is different: the food richer, the cities more historic, the beaches longer and whiter, the music more vibrant. This was the first part of Brazil to be settled, the area where sugar cane and slavery dominated economy and society for over three centuries. For visitors, the Northeast offers a year-round tropical climate with long, white sandy beaches, historic cities, and a vibrant Afro-Brazilian culture, which is reflected in the cuisine, the festivals, and, especially, the music and dance.
Porto de Galinhas is one of the nicest beach destinations in all the Northeast. Known for its crystal-clear water, its lovely beaches, and the tidal pools that form in the nearby reefs, the region is a perfect water playground for adults and children. Development has been kept resolutely small-scale. With no high-rises, the town is mostly small pousadas and low-rise hotels. The town has perhaps six streets: enough for a dozen restaurants, a bank, some surf shops, and some beachside bars. Colorful jangadas (one-sail fishing rafts) come and go all day, and the beachside restaurants and cafes are packed with people soaking up rays.
Porto de Galinhas enjoys a tropical climate with sunshine year-round. Rain showers arrive in May and last till August. Seawater maintains a steady temperature of about 79 °F (26 °Celsius), much to the delight of tourists.
