Frances Beach, Marechal Deodoro

3.8
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Marechal Deodoro
The best place to go surfing and swimming near Maceió is Frances Beach--where the waves are tall and safe, and there are no sharks or sharp coral reefs to worry about. On Maceió's south coast, this beach paradise welcomes you into its warm, bright blue and emerald-green waters for an unforgettable experience including snorkeling, scuba diving, and bodyboarding.

The left side of Praia do Francês (Francês Beach) bustles with activity from several bars and restaurants. This side has many beach alcoves with smaller pools that provide an intimate setting for swimming amongst the calm waves protected by reefs. On the opposite side of the beach, you'll find a laid-back surfer crowd attracted by strong, wild waves that promote championship surfing. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Marechal Deodoro fast, fun, and easy.

  • I found the beach too full and not to mention that the sea is taking care of the edge. A lot of traveling salesman.

  • The beach is being revitalized, with this, the barracks were demolished and does not have many dining options. The look is beautiful. There is the option of boat trip that takes us to 1 km from the coast, where the crew seek some marine animals to show the diversity of the place. Then there is a break in the natural pools where the water is warm and pleasant.

  • I spent 12 days in French with my spouse and infant son. I found what it sought, an ideal haven for relaxation. At the time I was very few people during the days of the week. And if away you 200 metres, these only in paradise. For a rough sea side and waves and a spectacular pool at low tide. Weekends are filled with people in the zone of the "barracas" where there are nice sellers and varied gastronomic offers. Within what would become the town itself, it is a simple and friendly place. There are various places to eat and taste the typical dishes of the North-East. Highly recommended for those seeking rest and relaxation with incredible frame of the sea in these latitudes and affordable for those who suffer the extras in Argentina. Thank you French and its people.

  • Regular
  • Adjust the color of the water (at least on the day I went) was ugly compared to Maceió. The tide was low, but of 20/20 min the tide rose and had to keep changing the chairs. Have equal 25 March walking! Has no tent "cool" to be. The prices are more savory than of Maceió.

  • Very nice beach, one of the most beautiful of Alagoas, somehow this well preserved, of a time here are investing, so shy, but are, on local infrastructure, which before was 0. On the beach that bothers enough is the harassment of hawkers, each minute has a to your side. Hard to talk to someone without being interrupted.

  • One of the best of Maceió for bathing, because the waters are very calm and there's no waves due to coral seawall!!!!! Great for practicing the ride. .... Very good ❤ ❤ 👍👍👍

  • Beautiful beach. Excellent to take children to the part where the reef and the other for those who enjoy surfing. The only thing he didn't do was find a lot of plastic bag in the water and in the sand.
