Praia da Sereia, Maceio

1.9
#16 of 25 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. Use our Maceio family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Praia da Sereia and other attractions in Maceio.

    Very nice beach, a little precarious infrastructure but the bars put desire and good care.

    Mermaid beach is at the exit of Maceió, via North Shore, although not much hyped, the beach is beautiful, especially in the dry tide, however the shower is best when the tide, scroll through all the beach, and seek the most convenient place. I advise you to stay away from the shore, where the waves are more agitated. The structure is a little shaky, but it's worth having a quick and take a nice bath.

    A shame that a beach so beautiful be so ugly because of the shacks on the sand. Worth spending to see the beauty of this beach.

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.
