Nothing to recommend here, just a long beach with water too brown to swim in it Nothing like Bahia I think Aracaju has an upkeep problem, many places run down, dirty and nothing I would ever return to

Best beach in Aracaju, good restaurants and bars. Good waves for surfing and bodysurfing and plenty of people to watch.
