Praia da Sereia, Maceio

3.1
#11 of 23 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.

  • It's a very nice beach. Has a part with waves and one without, just believe it lacked a better structure of the tents that offer services on the beach. Even though I was well attended ... the tents are quite simple. But ... Overall ... It was nice day on the beach.

  • The beach is beautiful and very quiet, ideal to take the family. Sin is the precarious structure of beach huts, people who attend are not kind, prices are very salty and not a lot of quality products!

  • Wonderful place to go with kids because during morning and mid-afternoon beach is a calm and without wave pool. Very friendly and economic services. Ideal for rest

  • It's a beautiful beach! I went on a holiday and gets way too crowded (then I recommend you arrive early in the morning). The only bad part is the excess of hawkers who pass repeatedly through the tents, disrupt our conversations and are very pushy! This disturbs a lot detail who came to relax and enjoy a day with friends and family.

  • Options of bars facing the sea. Unsophisticated, but receptive staff. Possibility of peaceful bath in low tide with reef keeping part of the edge.
