(4.5/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Mangue Seco is a beach village in Jandaíra, Bahia, Brazil.

Actually, the city lies near the river that marks the border between the two states, the Real River. It is located about 80 km southwest from the city of Aracaju (Sergipe's capital). It can be reached by a 15-min boat trip from three different ports: Porto do Mato, Terra Caida and Pontal.TourismThe village itself consists of a small fishermen village, and has approximately 300 inhabitants. Among the main touristic attractions are the beaches, the buggy trips on the sand dunes and the small, typical Brazilian church.

  • You know that paradise that stopped in time? Then, Mangue Seco is so like scenic city of film, where the scenery is breathtaking, the desire to sleep in those deserted beaches somewhere, just to see the starry sky. On one side of the River lies the Bahia and Sergipe, on the other hand is worth spending a couple of days, turn the phone off and feel how good it is to places where the imperfection of consumption and of civilization has not yet arrived.

  • What a wonderful place! Ride of a lifetime for those who are in Aracaju! We went by car (1 hour) to a place where we took boat to go to the Islands. Arriving there, we hired a buggy ride which was great! The dunes are not very large so the kids don't get scared. The scenery from the top of the dunes is beautiful, one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! The buggy after strolling the beach, which is very good, and for the reataurante of Mrs. Raimunda. We get her on the beach for about 4 hours, love! The beach was virtually deserted, with no one (we went on a Wednesday). Best ride I did on the trip!

  • Great for those looking to escape the world for a while. If it's to stay, stay at the hotel fantasy, very beautiful. The bars of the beach has a simple menu, and a service a little slow, but compensates by dune buggy ride.

  • Place a lot of sand. Rrrrrss But have the buggy trips that you can have some magnificent photos. The beach it's no big deal. The staff of the tent is very good!

  • I didn't much like. Could be better exploited. Beautiful nature but without structure for tourism.

  • Enchanting natural beauty. Buggy rides and Quads (guided and with stops in some viewpoints) on the dunes of "tieta" are the major attractions of the place. 40 km of beautiful beaches makes the ride worth tb.
