“a stop for pictures”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

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.

“Gorgeous beach for long walks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

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”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

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.

“Dirty, ugly, crowded.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

trash everywhere coming and going with the waves.
Too many people and not much sand area.
Beach restaurants one after the other.
It may have been good in the past, now it has become a area spoiled by tourists. It took us hours to arrive there because of the traffic.
