Full description
Located on the northernmost point of the Alagoas Gold Coast, Maragogi Beach is known for its beauty and living "Gales", a reef complex named after old shipwrecks. You will begin your journey with a complimentary pick-up from your hotel in Maceio before driving to Maragogi Beach. Along the way your expert guide will inform you of the history of this magnificent beach. Learn about the history of the beach’s name and how the French and Dutch fought for this area.

The major attraction of the beach is the "Gales", a group of tropical pools formed at low tide. Here you can explore this amazing eco-system among coral-lined reefs. To reach the Gales, you must take a catamaran ride for an additional cost. The crystal-clear waters of this beach are great for snorkeling and scuba diving. After exploring this natural beauty, you will visit the tourist facility where you can enjoy the local cuisine at one of the many restaurants, or shop for local arts and crafts from the vendors.
