Wonderful, transparent water, no waves

The best beach I have been to, including the Caribbean beaches. The water is so transparent that you can see fishes around your feet

Everyone raved about this beach, but i didnt find it very interesting. The water is very still and in between rocks. Seemed nice from the distance but a bit boring wached up close. Maybe if you are traveling with kids and they prefer a more pool like space

What was beautiful on picture is a catastrophe live. Dirty beach surrounded by construction. Miljons of Beach buggy just above the beach all trying to drive wildest. The water is dead. Don't waist a day here.

Great sandy beach with war' waters. A little more luxous than porto beaches but less activities at night

There were a lot of positive feedbacks but I can't agree. It must have been once a very beautiful place but now you have on the right a lot of new ugly houses under construction and on the left the industrisl harbour. On the beach you are among thousands. In the water all the fish has gone. Its a pity... More

The beach would be nice with a natural pool, but paying 80 BRL to get there is not worth the money. If you are not at one of the resorts in the south you will be among too many people and every 2 minutes someone will try to sell you stuff, the whole experience is really for those who like... More

Muro Alto is beautiful! It is a 2km long rock pool. The water is a stunning blue colour. Here you can hire kayaks or paddle boards or just go for a swim. There are restaurants on the beach where you can order food, the food is not amazing but you can get a basic fish and chips dish as well... More

Fuimos en un paseo de Buggy, recorrimos Porto de Galinhas de punta a punta y el último lugar fue la playa de Muro Alto (llegamos cerca del mediodía). La temperatura del agua es calentita y calma y da para nadar hasta el muro y caminar sobre el. Si van a hacerlo aconsejo llevar calzado. Hay barracas con sillas y sombrillas... More
