“Gunga's beach , paradise between lagoons and ocean!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Gunga is a beautiful beach between the lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by a large coconut grove. We took a sailboat and traveled along the San Miguel River and River Lagoon Roteiro between sandy shores of the river and ocean. Near the beach there is beautiful landscape of cliffs (Falésias Praia Gunga), with colors of red, orange and gray . Just amazing! You can go there from Praia do Gunga with buggy. (about 30 BRL)

“Sea and river meet in a wonderful landscape.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Kayaks to rent, banana boat rides, calm sea in front of the bars. Fantastic beach with up to 3 feet waves only 20 minute-walk southbound, no sign of civilization except for the buggies taking tourists to the next beach.

“The best beach in Alagoas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Nice sea and wild views (hidden from the crowd). You must take a 4x4 motorcicle and visit the "falesias". And don´t miss the high top of view among the coccoa trees (be careful and only go there if it is full and with policemen around).
It is better run from the weekends and hollidays.

“Perfect scenario!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

We decided to reach Praia do Gunga passing through the Praia do Francês and Barra de São Miguel, using the services of the tour operator Jaraguá Turismo. Although the driver did not speak English, the tour was well organized and the Praia Gunga is of an incomparable beauty.

Despite all the natural beauty, it is a sad that many tourists from different nationalities do not preserve the environment as they should. Close to the bars and restaurants, the number of plastic cups in the sand was embarrassing.

Walk away from the bars and indulge yourself in the wonderful landscape that draws on the coast framed by palm trees.
