“Worth the trip”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Gunga Beach was about an hours drive away from the Maceio Mar hotel but worth the $12 for the excursion. The beach has little shops and plenty of places to get food from. There are tables and chairs with umbrellas to sit at on the beach. People don't really lay out like they do in U.S., they more just lounge and go in the water. Food and drinks are reasonably priced. The beach was clean. They offer dune buggy rides for $15 a person and can fit 4 people or 4 wheelers which is like $35 a person I think. It's worth doing at this beach and only takes an hour for the whole thing. Your also next to one of the largest coconut farms in the country and there is a viewing point that our guide took us to to take pictures. The beach is clean and didn't have too many people as its winter there and locals aren't looking for the beach so much. There was also music being played or sung live so it was entertaining.

There are several tourism agents to take you to Gunga beach. Good infra-structure in the place to stay.

“The paradise is here ...”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Wonderful place, calm sea, beatiful peoples but I think the "barracas" (Little restaurants in front of the beache) are very expensive ... The restaurants in Maceio are cheap than restaurants in Gunga's beach. The food it is so bad ... Enormous quantity but the quality no better. I prefer the "caldinho de feijao" ...

“Nice beach, but polluted and crowded”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Its worth a visit if you are in Maceió, but I probably wouldn't go back.
Too many people, too many bars, terrible to no service at the bars and too much trash in the water and in the sand.
