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.

  • French beach is a beautiful beach. Surrounded, tranquil waters, which have are best used at low tide. I don't recommend going on weekend or holiday, pq lota. The barracks are common, without much structure. We stayed in the Tent therapy, with super kind and considerate care of Smile, recommend. But Barra de São Miguel is a lot better!

  • Delicious Beach, quiet, clear water, many fish in sight. Great beach to go with children. Has many stalls on the beach, but nothing to ruin the tour. I loved it, I'm sure when I'm in Maceio again, we're going to the beach of the French.

  • I loved the French. It was an incredible experience. We stay all day. The tents that serve on the beach are good. You need to search the price. Because it varies according to the amount of tourists on the beach. Perfect place. Best beach!!!
