You’ll spend your first night in the resort town of Porto de Galinhas, a couple of hours from Recife, before heading further south and away from the usual tourist trail. Your next stop will be São Miguel dos Milagres, around 3.5 hours further south, where you’ll spend 2 nights. This is a serene, picturesque little town next to a stretch of unspoiled coastline with warm and shallow waters, sheltered by the reefs offshore. Relax by the beach, rent a dune buggy, or head out snorkeling. There’s not too much going on around here, but isn’t that sort of the point?
