Inspirock Rating:
3/5 based on 8,500+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Since I was well attended, first to settle and then asked me what I wanted, I felt welcomed. Beautiful place, good beach for who's afraid of the sea, tranquil waters. Many dining options. I will come back for sure.

  • In addition to the natural beauty of the place, the French beach is great for bathing. It is possible to buy the neighborhood articles like bikinis, swimwear, t-shirts and handicrafts, however on the weekends the place is pretty full.

  • Very pretty, there's plenty of choice of shops selling everything, but not too cheap. But it's very, very crowded with tourists and peddlers in the sand. Worth the visit but not stay all day.
