Praia da Sereia, Maceio

(1.8/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
You can’t miss the white mermaid statue, in all its mythical beauty, sitting atop the rocks at Praia da Sereia. Over the years, local fishermen have reported sightings of the fabled creatures off the coast of Alagoas, hence the name of the beach--“sereia” is “mermaid” in Portuguese--. You can bathe in the clear, calm waters of the naturally-formed, shallow pools, completely protected from the swell of the ocean by the reefs, or bask in the sunshine on the soft sand. The simple infrastructure adds to the charm of this rustic beach. Use our Maceio family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Praia da Sereia and other attractions in Maceio.

  • Near Maceio - about 15 minutes by car. Some cheap places to eat and drink. No waves, like a pool in the sea. Check the sea times to schedule your visit to an "empty hour", otherwise you´ll not be able...  more »
