Frances Beach, Maceio

(9,500+ reviews on the web)
Beach
The best place to go surfing and swimming near Maceió is Frances Beach--where the waves are tall and safe, and there are no sharks or sharp coral reefs to worry about. On Maceió's south coast, this beach paradise welcomes you into its warm, bright blue and emerald-green waters for an unforgettable experience including snorkeling, scuba diving, and bodyboarding.

The left side of Praia do Francês (Francês Beach) bustles with activity from several bars and restaurants. This side has many beach alcoves with smaller pools that provide an intimate setting for swimming amongst the calm waves protected by reefs. On the opposite side of the beach, you'll find a laid-back surfer crowd attracted by strong, wild waves that promote championship surfing.

  • French beach is beautiful and has a great infrastructure, parking, shower, toilets and restaurants. It's the kind of beach that you don't have to go out to do anything else. The ride to the natural pools is legal, but no big deal. The shops near the beach has beautiful handicrafts.
