w it is the second time we came to praia do gunga in one year interval.It is ,in fact, disappointing. You are requested a 10 brl fee to enter the area using a bad sandy road. The quality of the sea is vey bad with residues coming from other areas floating. Then, the barracas request you to drink and eat... More

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.

Without doubt one of the most beautiful beaches of Brazil. The water is cristal clear and the view is fantastic. Unfortunately the ´Mirante´ has become a touristic supermarket with a lot of noise and now you have to pay for the view, some years ago it was for free. Loud music ( as everywhere in Brazil ) takes the fun... More

Gunga Beach is one of the best beaches I've ever been to in Brazil. The sand is almost white and you can enjoy, in the same place, the sea and the lagoon. I mean it's a beach where the sea and the lagoon meet so you can enjoy being at the sea with small waves or going "round the corner"... More

Maceio, and the NE of Brazil in particular, has the best beaches in the country and in the Southern Hemisphere Atlantic side in general. The water during summer is very pleasant, a nice shade of green and warm. The beach goes on for as long as you could possibly want and there is a natural offshore wave break in this... More
