Cruises from Maceio
Maceio is the capital city of the northern Brazilian state of Alagoas. Its principal attraction would have to be its 20km of urban beaches, as well as the delightful sandy beaches to the north and south. Of particular interest are the northern beaches of Ponta Verde with the boardwalk lined with beach bars, and Pajucara Beach that hosts a nightly craft market. Just off the coast, rocky reefs form shallow natural pools known as ‘parrachos’ that provide fantastic opportunities for snorkelling and swimming.
So be sure to head to the Praia Pajucara and jump on one of the brightly coloured jangada boat excursions.
