It's one of the beaches of the city. Stands in between Pajuçara and Jatiúca. The beach is beautiful but receive illegal sewage pipes from hotels and other companies that do not care about the enviroment. Even though people should not bathe there, you can still see lots of them doing it, most of them ignore these horrible facts.

Located along the long boardwalk of Maceio, this beach has less tourists and offers a nice beach and waters to swim in. During the low tides of the full moon, one can walk very far out in shallow waters and explore the various sea life...

Nice, with white sands and blue sea. The colour of the sea is wonderful. The most beautiful in the north-east side of the country.

Water is awesome, pretty calm and relatively clean. Lots of bars/restaurants on the beach. Areas both for people watching or for a little solitude. Police have little "outposts" around so is pretty safe. Don't like - further south of the beach is where all the local youngsters hang out, can be very load (music) and the smell of marijuana is...

Beautiful beach to walk along, stop for a beer along the many stands, admire the amazing turquoise-colored water, but unfortunately polluted and not recommended for swimming.

the water was a clean bluish green. the waves were soft and low. the beach in general wasn't packed. we found it real easy to chairs and a table. we also didn't have a lot of people swarming around pushing to sell stuff and other beaches in the area

This beach stretches out on a peninsula with Jatiuca on one side and the equally stunning Pajucara on the other. It's like a mini-Miami, with white pristine beaches, lovely coconut tree lined avenues and a fabulous prom with a seperate cycle lane. Walkers are already on it by 5am, often bumping into clubbers going home. Hangover cures are available from... More
