I've been to lots of beaches in Alagoas, Pernambuco, Ceará, Bahia, Paraíba .... and this is certainly one of the most beautiful I've visited. The color of the water is just amazing. I got hypnotized when I first saw it. The restaurant that takes the same name serves delicious food with honest prices and amount. It's a must see place.... More

In my humble opinion, this is the best beach in Maragogi. There's a place there where a small clear river joins the sea, so while the tide is low (mornings), the sand banks form several small swimming pools with water so clear and warm that you really don't want to leave it.

One of the best and most pleasing beaches of the ten of Maragogi's wonderful areas. Home to the Hotel Praia Dourada and also the Day Turism mecca Pontal de Maragogi. Funny, you hardly notice these attractions. The beach is wide and long with very beautiful views of the lagoon. All this just to the north of the Maragogi City Center.
