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.

  • Lovely place, the beach and too calm, in the period of the afternoon the tide on making it impossible to get to the Mermaid to photos, we arrived early and we can go to the mermaid.

  • Beautiful beach right, instead of hot water, silent, literally a pool, we stayed at the fulcrum of the chicken run over, we were met by Severino, undoubtedly very cool

  • Although the beach is very beautiful, is poorly attended and poorly cared for. The place is dirty, the structures of the decadent kiosks. Too bad, because the local nature is beautiful. I don't recommend going.
