Atalaia beach has no structure, so it makes very hard to spend the day at the beach. Although the water is very clean, it's brownish because the river meets the ocean

Best beach in Aracaju, good restaurants and bars. Good waves for surfing and bodysurfing and plenty of people to watch.

Atalaia avenue is beautiful, full of restaurants and lots of entertainment. One of the Aracaju post cards you can't miss it!

The sea can be a bit rough. The promenade is long and nice to walk on. There are some dodgy places along the coastline - we had concerns about health & safety. There was loud and annoying music played on the beach. Not safe to walk around in the evening.
