Beautiful beach with calm waters and amazing view. Local structure is enough to be there with a fair service, such as food, bathroom and drinks. The view is the main reward for each one that looks for relax, enjoy the sun and swimming in a beautiful sea.

Poor infrastructure. Dishes cost an arm and a leg. Extremely loud music. The landscape is nice and the beach is above average, but if you weigh everything, this is not really among the best options available. You can watch videos of Maceio and other trips I took in my Youtube channel, in https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSnlDgGBkeCnhbDbLLkCjew

We headed towards the first of three beach areas that we would visit today – the beach of Praia do Gunga. This is an idyllic white sand beach that curves to a point at the meeting of the Rio Sao Miguel and the sea. The beach is protected by a huge offshore reef, so the area inside almost becomes like...

Loved this beach. Good beach for the whole family, one side has calm waters and the other has waves coming in but still easy and fun swimming. Good facilities and plenty to do

Beautiful outdoor, low infra structure but great warm reception from the restaurants in that place. You can get there by boat or but road. Get the boat and travel though the water and see the Corals.
