It Gets Deep really quick....

Well, I liked Gunga Beach but when you get into the water...better be careful, because it gets deep really fast. 2 or 3 steps......I recommend but with some restrictions.

I love Maceio! Beautiful town with a beautiful sea. I took the September holiday in Brazil and returned to town. I wanted to return to Barra de São Miguel to Gunga. I do not think the interesting beach of the French. What interested me was to go Barra de São Miguel to Gunga beach, across the sea in a boat,... More

the beach is really nice, there is food in the beach with a good infrastrucuture. You should take the quadriclyce or the buggy ride to the cliffs. It is the best thing of the beach.

Beautiful beach private area with this farm of palm trees , the buggie car ride is amazing, the beach is clean but the waves very strong.

I first visited this beach 24 years ago and it was a paradise. Unfortunately all good things become exploited and ruined. The restauants used to have a wonderful menu with top quality dishes. Yesterday we went for the afternoon and I was thoroughly disappointed with the poor quality of food with very high prices . We went to a restaurant... More

We decided to do the quad bike tour on the beach, this was definitely the highlight of the tour. It was... More

We wanted a nice, calm family day on the beach, with our own picnic basket. We were in Gunga some years ago and remembered it that way. So we went. The bad experience started with queing a narrow road where, in the end, we were charged big for the parking. On the beach we asked several places about the system,... More

This is a beautiful beach that was unfortunately been overexploited by tourism. Twenty years ago it might have been a paradise, but not it is a overcrowded tourist trap. If you are after beautiful, still unspoiled beaches in Maceió keep yourself in the north shore - Prategy is one beautiful beach with reasonable infrastructure (there is a resort nearby with... More

Nice clean beach with stunning views. Don't miss the tour to the "falesias" for me it was the highlight of the day! The restaurants are expensive and the food isn't that good. There are some water sports too. Don't forget the suncream!
