Praia do Patacho - Piscinas Naturais, Sao Miguel dos Milagres

(550+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
Upon arrival at the coast, you will be dumbfounded at the unspoiled nature and tranquility of the area. São Miguel dos Milagres fringes 15 km (9 miles) of beach, protected by both coral reef and lack of a highway; only those in the know take the local road that leads to a forest of coconut trees and scattered villages. At low tide, you can hire a jangadeiro--a small traditional fishing boat--and head to the Praia do Patacho - Piscinas Naturais, and on the journey, you should prepare yourself for paradise. These natural pools of crystal-clear blue-green ocean teem with marine fauna, including brightly colored fish, crabs, and octopi, as well as manatees that have ventured down from the river up the coast. The warm water is inviting and you can relax for hours, surrounded by wildlife, in almost total seclusion. You’ll be pushed to find a better way to spend your day.

  • Preserved nature and stunning location. Better to visit these natural pools than those in Maragogi - Maragogi is simply too crowded.  more »
