Great infraestructure, the sea was calm in the morning and you could enjoy swimming near the shore with no effort. There are many attractions there: Banana Boat, flight on a little plane, quadricycle and buggy for a fair price. I loved it!!

Without a thought one of my favourite beaches in Maceio. If you want you can be near the busy areas or you can walk a little more and be in a more private/quite setting. Just beautiful

This is a must. Inside and down a coconut tree plantation there is a this beautiful stretch of beach with waves on one side and with calm water on the side by a lagoon.

Amazing view, but you have to get there early. Be aware of annoying vendors and pricy restaurants. But it's worth it.

This beach is active with boom boxes blaring music but with a beer and broiled lobster it all dissipates. Enjoyed great swims !

The place is an amazing beach but a lot peple came to make noise, rent dune cars and disturbing ven the fishes. I'm sure I see a boat flyng nearest 1,000,000 semi nude locals. They do not known what means catastrofic or accident or explosion.... Go to the north beaches and be happy and safe.
