Frances Beach, Praia do Frances
Categories: Beaches, Nature & Parks, Outdoor Activities
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.

Next to bars the population of tourists is too large, and consequently there are many street vendors, however walk 10 min to right or left of the main entrance has a still and quiet environment near the beach restaurants. For those who are in Maceió suggest leasing of car, so there's freedom and go back and forth at any time. The highlight: the beach paradise and tranquility of places further afield. Low: there are many vendors near the main entrance. If this is a problem I suggest you stay inside of bars.show original
