The Galinhos Lighthouse

Galinhos is situated the farthest up the coast and has certainly evolved from the times when it was just a small fishermen village. It is said that the splendid combination of the lagoas (lakes), the dunes and the sea is almost dazzling for the untrained eye. Galinhos is located 160 km from Natal and 50 km from São Miguel do Gostoso. At low tide, one can even reach Galinhos by walking on the beach from Caicara, which is a unique experience, enjoying the multitude of vegetation and the breathtaking seaside scenery. The romantic atmosphere in Galinhos makes you feel exuberant. If you want a quiet place where you can escape from civilization, Galinhos is what you should be looking for.

Natal has a typical tropical climate, with warm to hot temperatures and high relative humidity all throughout the year. However, these conditions are relieved by a near absence of extreme temperatures and pleasant trade winds blowing from the ocean. Known as the “City of Sun” and also as “The City of Dunes” Natal is located in the northeastern tip of Brazil. Lying about 15 degrees south of the equator the sun shines on for more than 3,000 hours every year and the days seem to last forever. The average temperature in Natal is about 27 degrees Celsius. During the summer season it normally reaches above 30 degrees Celsius with the water at a soothing 26 degrees. The greatest amount of rain falls between March and July.
