Praia da Sereia, Maceio

3.1
#12 of 22 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.

  • The place has no structure to receive those who like something a little less common. However, take a picture of the Mermaid and the maximum point of the beach.

  • We decided to visit Mermaid Beach on a Saturday. The water was delicious. The place is beautiful, but a little unkempt. It's as if the visitors/residents valorizassem not the paradise that has. Too much garbage in the sand going for water. Missing a little more careful in this regard. We had lunch in the Coziness of the Bau, with the attendance of a Bahia full of joy and sympathy. The cost benefit great, simple food, but delicious. Thanks a lot!

  • The place is nice, as all the beaches of Maceio, however, there are other far more interesting and beautiful, so just stop there to take a picture.

  • 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.

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.
