Praia da Sereia, Maceio

3.1
#11 of 21 in Beaches in Maceio
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. Put Praia da Sereia into our Maceio tour itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Maceio.

  • There is a part of the beach without any structure and full of surfers. Sea more agitated, and water is not as clear as in other beaches, but warm and no mess. At sunset the water is iridescent color. The name of the beach is because has Mermaid sculpture was built on a barrier reef and rocks. Only at low tide. In the place where she is has bars with precarious structure, but very gentle and humble people.

  • Mermaid is very deserted, not found safe, without infrastructure, small sand band and when the tide covers everything.

  • Tranquil beach, only more structured tents. There's no night life, which on one hand is excellent, however lack restaurants. There's a good pizza joint next to the Sesc, a good hotel well glued to the beach.

  • Excellent location, when the tide recedes to form a lake. Very nice and with several tents with tables and chairs to enjoy a good seafood and a good drink.

  • It's not very disclosed because it is a simple place, but spend the day at the site and see the tide changing makes it magical.
