Mundau Lake, Maceio

(340+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
With its astonishing natural beauty, the best way for you to experience Mundau Lake is by boat. During the cruise, you will crisscross nine small islands, stopping occasionally to disembark and enjoy a stroll on the white sand beaches or a swim in the warm lagoon waters. The large mangrove is teeming with fish, crabs, shrimp, and shellfish, which you can enjoy, freshly prepared, in the simple, yet excellent restaurants on the shores of the lake. The final stop of the tour is always Barra Nova, the spot where the lake's water meets that of the Atlantic Ocean. Here, you get a spectacular view of the deep green sea of the ocean. Note: Mundaú Lagoon has a problem with pollution in the rainy season.
