“Big small town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Barra de São Miguel is located 35 km outside Maceió through AL101 - South, which is being duplicated for better accomodation of the intense and insane traffic it usually has during summer, for that is the way of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world (and i'm not exagerating!). The small city has some 20.000 inhabitants trhoughout the year, but around Carnaval the number rises up to 150.000!!! There are countless mansions, bangalows, apartaments that can be rented for a fairly reasonable price outside summertime and the city itself already provides some ammenities for the traveller you don't usually find in small towns, like good restaurants, supermarket, ATMs, drugstores and 24/7 convenience stores, plus inns, b&bs and 4*hotels. The beach is clean, clear-watered, protected by a huge coral reef that makes it perfect for kids. The wealthy families from Alagoas use to have beach homes there and spend the summer holidays and weekends. Lots of beautiful young people and all the problems that come with them, such as loud music, drunk minors and messy parties.

“Calm and warm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

Since there is a natural barrier 200 meters away, there are no big waves. Really good for chilling and family.
