#11 of 16 in Beaches in Aracaju
The most popular urban beach in Aracaju, thanks to its good infrastructure, Artistas beach (Old Watchtower Beach) is also much frequented by surfers. As well as the usual beach stalls selling snacks and coconut water, you will find plenty of bars where you can enjoy a drink and a dance, and those looking to exercise will appreciate the basketball, soccer and tennis courts, and the nearby skate park. Be careful when swimming, as the strong currents and hidden underwater trenches have been known to catch tourists unawares.
