As most beaches in Maceió, the reefs turn the sea into a giant salty pool. Barra de São Miguel is not as crowded as the neighboring beaches of Francês or Gunga, and the water is deliciously cooler.

Barra de São Miguel is located 35 km outside Maceió through AL101 - South, which is being duplicated for better accomodation of the intense and insane traffic it usually has during summer, for that is the way of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world (and i'm not exagerating!). The small city has some 20.000 inhabitants trhoughout the... More

Since there is a natural barrier 200 meters away, there are no big waves. Really good for chilling and family.
