Praia da Sereia, Maceio

(500+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • We ended up on the beach of unsuspecting Mermaid. The sand was filthy and full of dogs and pigeons everywhere.

  • I've been on the same beach for 25 years and the place is beautiful, but the 2012 storms destroyed the barracks and the place is pretty ugly. The local municipal Government should invest, set an architectural pattern and for the tents, asphalt access, create parking, deploy and promote trade in showers. Today, it's not worth it.
