This is a stop on the way to Gunga. It is nice to take a picture and check out the few shops behind the beach. 20 minutes are enough.

Absolutely lovely if everyone picked up their trash and disposed of it propertly. Cute stores in the area, a little over priced compared to big market in Fortelaza.

Beautiful beach and nice food! Very friendly restaurant attendants! If you can spend more time Go to Praia do Gunga (Gunga's beach) The Most beautiful beach I've ever seen!!! You can walk in the ocean and appreciate the exotic fishes and the coral reef up close!!!

That beach is wonderful!! It is a must-seen attraction in Maceio. Go to the beach in the early morning, because the traffic is terrible to get there.

trash everywhere coming and going with the waves. Too many people and not much sand area. Beach restaurants one after the other. It may have been good in the past, now it has become a area spoiled by tourists. It took us hours to arrive there because of the traffic.
