Simple Day At The Beach – Porto de Galinhas – Near Recife, Brazil


Photo of the Day – Simple Day At The Beach – Porto de Galinhas – Near Recife, Brazil

Porto de Galinhas is one of a million absolutely incredible beaches that line the northeastern coast of Brazil. This particular beach is famous for the low tide reef-formed swimming pools which we featured in a photo of the day a few months ago.

Today I wanted to post a basic photo of the beach to help provide a better idea of what this tropical paradise looks like from the waters edge. As you can see it is full of people relaxing in comfy lounge chairs and soaking up the Brazilian sun. This is definitely the type of beach that people show up to at ten in the morning and hang out until the fading sunlight brings the day to a close.

If you look closely you can spot Will in the photo! Do you see him?

Low Tide Fishing Hole – Porto de Galinhas, Brazil


Photo of the Day – Low Tide Fishing Hole – Porto de Galinhas, Brazil

Porto de Galinhas is frequently mentioned on lists of the best beaches in the world! The beaches in this small town are paradise perfect, but the highlight of my first visit was the small reef pools that were created out in the ocean at low tide. For a few dollars you could hire a boat to take you out to the pools and spend the afternoon floating wadding in a natural aquarium filled with exotic fish that swam around right in front of your eyes. Amazing!
