Where to stay in Saquarema

Most of Saquarema's accommodations concentrate on the lagoon's southern edge. Choose from costlier hotels with plenty of amenities, simple accommodations like bed and breakfasts, and budget hotels. Prices and levels of luxury tend to increase with proximity to the water, whether the lagoon or the sea. Head out of town a bit to the east or west for simpler, less expensive beachside rooms.

  • The location of the Church on top and almost completely surrounded by ocean gives a very interesting charm and feel sharp to be witnessing the postcard. The blue of the sea the beaches around generally is more beautiful, I can't explain well why but it is like the sky. The seagulls soar on the wind strength and are very close as if they were floating right in your face. Be careful because the freshness of the wind put the skin temperature but the Sun's rays are still burning.

  • Beautiful view of Saquarema! It is worth climbing the staircase and view the sea and the lagoon.

  • Great for pictures. It's a bit cold in the afternoon. It would be interesting to update the hours of operation.
