Great place. Lots of restaurant and food option. Different activities available so you wont just sit in the sun all day. Beautiful view. Different from anything you will ever experience. Tip for getting there: roads not very well signaled but I bought a guided tour and it's great to learn more about the area and not worry about anything else.... More

Restaurante. Boggie Tours on the Coast. If travelling to Maceió. You must go there. The only trouble is you must check... More

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!!

Beautifull place, Go by boat, if you can. Lots of coconut trees and white sands. I really enjoyed and intend to Go Back many times.

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

Located about half-an-hour from Maceió, this is a stunning place. There are three kinds of beaches in the same place: a swimming pool like one, with absolutely no waves, one with calm safe waves, and one where things can go wilder (but not too wild). Everything is covered by coconut trees, and there are relatively good options for food and... More

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. A boat goes to the offshore reef and then it stops in the middle of the lagoon where there are two sand bars that look like... More

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.
