Maragogi: one of the best natural pools in all Brazil, calm sea beaches, comfortable hotels.
Go to the small town of Maragogi, northern part of the northeastern state of ‘Alagoas’. The feeling is of being in the Caribbean without leaving Brazil. The paradisiacal beaches – dense coconut trees, clear, cristal waters – are entitled to the comparison. Dive into the calm sea and closely observe coral reefs and be surrounded the body of colorful fish.
The location of the city is privileged: about 130 km from Maceio and Recife (2 capital cities), with easy access by both capitals. Maragogi – which name comes from ” free river ” – is part of the Coral Coast, the largest Environmental Protection Area of the Brazilian Navy.
Created in October 1997, the Environmental Protection Area of Coral Coast is 90 miles long and harbours four municipalities of the state of ‘Pernambuco’ (San Jose Grand Crown, Barreiros, Tamandaré and Formoso River) and nine of the state of ‘Alagoas’ (plus Maragogi, Barra Santo Antonio, São Luis Quitunde, Step Camarajibe, São Miguel dos Milagres, Porto de Pedras and Japaratinga).
