Gunga Beach, Roteiro

Celebrated for its extraordinary white sands and exuberant coconut groves, Gunga Beach offers the best of both worlds: a quiet inner beach and a bustling outer beach. The inner reef is quieter with soft white sands, small food and drink vendors, and calm waters. The outer reef is bustling with tourist activity, loud music, raging waves, many waterfront bar restaurants, and small shops selling handmade crafts. Praia do Gunga (Gungas Beach) has unique Maceió south coast positioning surrounded by high cliffs between Lagoa do Roteiro (Roteiro Lake) and the Atlantic Ocean. This gives the waters its signature turquoise color during low tide and its emerald green hue during high tide when the ocean waters meet the waters of the lake.

If you're feeling adventurous, you can rent equipment to go surfing, windsurfing, and jet skiing, or go on a boat tour beyond the reef. While none of the beaches in Brazil are private, access to this beach is private, but the coconut farm offers vehicle access for a fee. It's easier and more cost effective to get there by boat from Barra de São Miguel or via a tour guide company that transports you by bus or catamaran.

    I love the tranquility of the beach (Sunday or season) perhaps not so quiet, but in September when I was, it was super quiet, safe, we could go to walk and leave things not passing anything, very quiet, full of Palm trees sea , don't forget to go to the viewpoint that there is prior, a view hermosaa, was the beach which I liked, because I like the tranquility, which likes a crowded beach, most will not be its beach, I I love quiet beaches was my Beach 7 days I was in Maceió 3 I went to gunga

    The beach is super dirty, many street vendors all the time offering you something to get disturbing. Want to super bill on top of the tourist, a Buggy Ride real q 35 don't spend 20 minutes or the q boat takes you to the reef more 35 and still want q vc during the ride between on another boat q there was a bar to consume more. High prices and quality on the sidewalks. You should have someone to supervise it, while the beach is dirty and full of.

    Without a doubt one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever visited in my life!!! Who go to Maceió must meet the Praia do Gunga.

    Really very beautiful beach. But it has a great structure to make money but without infrastructure, dirty bathrooms, no SOAP, no toilet paper, no towel. The tables have minimum value of $50.00 to have right to sit. A coconut for 5.00 when on the beach beside are R $3.50. And in Maceió $2.00.

    Pretty much the gazebo at the entrance and also the beach, however everything is expensive, all the beaches of Maceió that I realized the most abuses of kiosks, including parking lot which is 15 reais, the sea's calm waters.
