Experience the Natural Pools in Porto de Galinhas

<img src="natural-pools.jpg" alt="natural pools" />The main highlight of Porto de Galinhas is the Natural pools.  Located on the beach in front of the town (super easy to get to). Check out one of the pools that is in the shape of Brazil (above)!  There are two ways to see and explore the pools.  Option 1. You can walk through the water and explore during low tide but as soon as the tide starts coming in, they stop letting people walk across.  Option 2: Take on of the little boats and you can explore for a little longer. 2014-06-28 16.31.47 The boat costs R$20, it is a short ‘paddle’ over and they provide snorkel masks plus food to feed the fish.  Some areas are protected, your boat guide will explain and point out the various types of corral, and give you food to feed fish; which is actually more fun than it sounds as there are tons of fish and they swim up to you! Check out all the fish below!fishThere are lots of sea urchins and the coral is quite rough so keep your flip flops on!  It is a beautiful and magical experience as you watch the tide come in and the pools disappear. Have fun swimming in the pools with all the fish and then head back to town for lunch= perfect day! Check out some more pics of the pools:
