This is a beautiful beach for a day trip. It is only about an hour from Maceió and several tour companies offer bus rides to this beach. There are many barracas where you can enjoy your peixe grilhada or camarão lunch with a cold beer. Use cash or debit card. The natural lagoons formed by the offshore reefs make it... More

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.

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.
