Patacho Beach, Porto de Pedras
(4.8/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Patacho Beach is paradise defined, known as the “Brazilian Caribbean” and ranked among the five best beaches in Brazil. This beach is quite deserted with soft white sand, the pristine, green waters, and lined with coconut trees. The sea is very calm and the water temperature is warm, perfect for swimming. Take a ride to the reef and walk to the river where you can see Manatees. Infrastructure is lacking so pack everything you will need for the day. Straight out of movie scenes, Patacho Beach is the essence of tranquility and relaxation. Make Patacho Beach a part of your Porto de Pedras vacation plans using our Porto de Pedras vacation builder.

  • Beautiful beach,isolated,natural & safe!!! A true relaxing environment..worth getting up for sunrise as it is right infront! Warm waters,not high waves,unspoilt.. 
  • The beach, in fact, is a paradise! Perhaps the most beautiful I've ever seen. However, my husband and I have been through a complicated situation on the last day 04/12 when we visited. The beach really is deserted, however, has a small Inn, where it worked the restaurant Coco Loko, which closed. We leave the car right next to this hotel, we stayed a while beside him and we decided to walk into the sea. We keep things in the car and we were around half an hour in the water, right in front of the car (a few 100 metres + thing). When we came back, had broken into the side glass and taken all of our stuff-cell phones, camera, clothes, money and documents. It was a real scare, as they never imagined that this could happen in a place so quiet and others close, because even being deserted, there were other families there. We went to the nearest police station and booked the O.R. officer Marie, very thoughtful, told us that it's been happening frequently for some time already. I decided to post here for everyone to be careful when visiting the beach, because if I knew of this situation, obviously it would have been more careful.

  • To tell you the truth, I didn't even know this existed until 01 Beach week before my trip to Maceió. Had the whole script ready to go to Maceió + Maragogi + Rams + Porto de Galinhas, but a week before I saw a video on youtube (Marcio channel in the world) and I came across this beach. I found it beautiful, and decided to put it in the script, just out of curiosity, didn't think it would become the first on my list in Alagoas rs. Was ready to surprise me with the beaches of Maragogi (of Antunes, in particular that really surprised me), but upon arriving at the beach was blown away. She is totally deserted, access is by a street (1 km away from the BR, approximately), enters the street next to the gas station (with the name Patacho post). Just saw an Inn there, well great, but doesn't have great buildings, only cottages, from what I've seen). The water is completely transparent (shades of green), with an amazing visibility, and the coral reef (muuuuitos) are all on the beach, that is, you don't even have to make raft ride to arrive, if the tide is low (of course, if the raft will go far, but what you will see will be the same thing lol). At low tide, you will walk and never stop walking, with the water in the ankle. The snorkel is required, I think I spent all morning floating on this beach. I saw several schools of fish, and a lot of things pretty close to the reef. To tell you the truth, I saw more there than on the sidewalk to the galleys of Maragogi. I'm a biologist, and I was surprised with a kind of seashells that I saw there, it seems that were hand-painted, so cute they were. I just loved this beach. Visibility for diving is amazing, second only to the Watchtower in Noronha. Tranquility is the perfect description. I think I saw some 5 people on the beach and some boats went through her ... No sign of hawkers. Only via sure rsssss coconut trees. Ah ... take water and something to eat because there is out there. ... That's good, because when you start to discover that beach, I'm sure it will be heralded as the rest of the region. Important: see Board of tides. The lower, the better. If you're in Maceió, rent a car, get a lot cheaper and you can meet your neighbors (São Miguel dos Milagres, Japaratinga, Maragogi etc). Recommend vehicle rental with the Leader Maceió (Edvânio), price super comrade and excellent service. Anyway, I'm in love lol, I think if I had gone to this beach on the first day I was in Maragogi, would have spent the next 5 days in praia do Patacho rs.
