Mundau Lake, Maceio

2.6
#5 of 14 in Sightseeing in Maceio
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.

  • The Mundau lagoon, one of the points of interest of the EC, great place to relax and spend time with friends and family.

  • The Mundaú lagoon offers a beautiful landscape, in addition to access to the work of the famous lace. Even thought the better price than in Pajuçara. We get little time there, but it was great.

  • Well-known tourist spot surrounded by fishermen's houses that they pull out your livelihood from it. There's also several on-site restaurants that serve fish but don't work at night in the vast majority of cases.

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.
