Praia do Patacho - Piscinas Naturais, Sao Miguel dos Milagres

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful, spectacular, charming, a dream. Recommend the jangadeiro Galician, he know the best days, tides to visit and know the finer points of the swimming pools. I was in the pool of Maragogi, Barra de São miguel, Pajuçara and not arrival at the foot of this. Who is the Alagoas cannot stop visiting.

  • The jangadeiro picked me up in front gives the Inn. And check the table of tides with the rafters. My tip is already find out the possibilities so that you get in town, because there are a lot of incidence of dead tide and there is not possible to make the trip. I think the swimming pools of Maragogi, there's a lot more fish (my opinion) but get the swimming pools of raft was a charm.

  • St. Michael is much more quiet than Maragogi and other beaches in the area with natural pools. The ride is very worthwhile! The snorkeling is possible view the corals and lots of fish. The water is crystal clear, and the price charged by the jangadeiros is good (40-50).
