One of the finest sand beaches

Although not as white but the sand is really fine and you can take great walks on this beautifully positioned beach.

Very dirty and simple environment Unfortunately no waste bins on they beach. Would be a nice project to collect plastic on the beach! Locals and Brazilians have no clue how to take care about there environment and natural beauty!

Great scenery but the stray dogs and kids selling things make it very hard to relax here. For example my girlfriend was swimming in the beach and was all of a sudden charged at by a stray dog that jumped on her scratching her and pushing her under the water, it took a lot to get the dog away and...

Given the magnificent beauties of other beaches you may reach in Alagoas, such as Praia do Patacho, Prai do Marceneiro, Praia do Toque, Bitingui and so on, Maragogi disappointed me. Too many people, invariably the beaches are more crowded and dirty, more poverty and children constantly approaching you to try and sell art. Having known other beaches before reaching Maragogi...

Maybe for Brazil these are very beautiful and exciting, for people who gave been to Thailand or better to the Red Sea, the clarity of water, number and selection of fish is not so great in order to spend a whole day on the trip from Maceio. About the drive organization. I bought a tour for 120 Reals from the... More

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to. As beautiful as Key West in Florida (USA). The beach is very clean and there are many different options of tours there. But the city of Maragogi is a little messy and dirty, the only problem.

You can stay a couple of days in Maragogi or just drive from Maceio early in the morning... But you MUST arrive early, before the tide rises, if you want to go snorkeling in the coral. The water color is of an amazing green and it is warm. You can go to the corals by speed boat (Lancha) or by... More

At the end of the beach there is the jonction of the efluent of a small river coming down from the hills, there you find the best hotel of this beach: Camurim Grande Pousada a perfect Paradise in confort, service and food.
