    the beach is very quiet and despite many stones in the water is really nice to go on a day of low tide because form little pools. a lull only. later the water begins to rise and at night, when the kiosks are beginning to close, she's well near the muretas. do not forget to meet

    We went in July ' 17 to the wonderful Inn "Dune paradise". At low tide beaches with few people walking quiet, with a warm sea and a soft breeze that it produces a wonderful feeling, only accompanied with the sound of the sea. Garça Torta is a fisherman's beach. Someone commented that there are abandoned piers, but they are actually sticks placed by fishermen to networks that gather fish. Talking to locals, they comment that, even at night, fish Octopus and lobsters. I recommend using suitable footwear for walking through the reefs and take advantage of the pools that form. Offshore Beach narrows slightly, but is perfect for a dip or at lunchtime, walking up to some of the restaurants of playa like "Milk" or "Garça Torta" (fishermen restautant, economic). Walking on the beach we saw employees wiping the beach. In winter, by the wind, the sea is scrambled. We were told that in the summer, with the calmer sea water turns Turquoise. One way or another, by the beauty and the people, it is to return many times.

Where to stay in Maceio

Accommodations in Maceio crowd around the city's eastern shorefront, competing for a spot in the morning sun. The best places to stay during your Maceio vacation are the neighborhoods of Ponta de Terra, Ponta Verde, and Jatiúca. You can find everything from free-spirited hostels to high-class hotels and beach resorts along the coastal strip, within a stone's throw of white sand beaches. To get off the beaten track, go west to the other edge of the city, where palm-lined Lagoa Mundaú brims with birdlife and local fishers looking for the day's catch among the mangroves.
