It's a beach far from the city, with high waves which are good for surfing. The water is clean and warm.

From Salvador, BA northward, you have the best beach zone in the southern hemisphere, IMO. Maceio is no exception. Has a large natural reef offshore on most of the beaches, so you have pretty total wave break. Calm waters during the summer, warm, clear, clean, no major currents.

Water is gorgeous. Restaurants are right on the beach with plenty of carts with drinks, corn, etc. Go just off the beach to get less expensive food. I don't know that I would stay here for a vacation - especially with Maceio Proper down the road ..but it is a fun day trip!

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.
