Praia do Patacho - Piscinas Naturais, Sao Miguel dos Milagres

(4.5/5 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.

  • Experiment very cool swim with the fishes and can observe closely the marine animals. We walk with the Teda which is in front of the full moon restaurant, pay 70.00 + 10.00 p/rent the snorkel (Yes, it's worth renting, you see perfectly the seabed). Liked cuz of all the people we quote, he was the one who explained the difference of the three natural pools and still went out before everyone else, which was great because we get some alone time in the pools before the guys all get (after that it's almost impossible to see fish, pq is very massive crowd). Another thing, opts for go to Catamarä (approx. a 50 boat people) or boat (max. 06). The difference comes out around 05 15 more p's real who goes by boat. We prefer the motorboat pq comes faster at swimming pools and tbm for being safer to leave your belongings while you walk. Another detail is that they rent the diving cylinders (120.00) and take pictures under d water (50-70 real depending on the number of chosen pictures), don't pay either of them, so I can't say about the quality.

  • Place delicious! Too bad I was hit and walk back. Would be at least three days there. I was in the structure (kiosk/tent) of Miracles. The breakfast, the boys were sweet. Hot drinks. The pool of São Miguel dos Milagres is amazing!!! That visual! Wanting to return urgently.
