Frances Beach, Praia do Frances
(3.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
An expansive beach, with strong waves on one side, and tranquil, reef-protected shallows on the other, Frances Beach caters both to thrill-seekers and those looking for a relaxing bathe. Take to the waves on a surfboard, banana boat or jet ski, or, for a more sedate option, take a tour of the reefs in a glass bottomed boat. The calm pools created by the reefs are also perfect for snorkeling. Plenty of bars, restaurants, and craft stalls congregate around this area, providing everything you need for a day at the beach. The name Frances Beach is said to come from the French smugglers who frequented the beach in colonial times. A visit to Frances Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Praia do Frances family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • I had already heard of Maceió but I was impressed to meet!!! The turquoise blue sea is beautiful too! Looks very the Caribbean!!! It seems much of the Miami, but with Brazilian way. French beach is awesome!! Loved staying here! The people are super welcoming and wants you to feel fine!! Give you everything but not with that insistence of other beaches. You can eat lobster or grilled cheese curds. Corn and green coconut ... cold beer ... delicious!!! And the breeze that not for one minute to blow!
