Maragogi

Beaches in Brazil. 21-Oct-2016 .BrazilBeachTravel
In the northeast of Brazil, between Maceio and Porto de Galinhas, landscapes of the Caribbean and Brazilian culture.

Maragogi, in the north of the state of Alagoas, is one of the best examples of the beach landscape that predominates in the northeast of Brazil. Turquoise sea, palm trees and coconut trees by the sea, coral reefs, natural pools, summer practically all year round and white sand. Something like the Caribbean in Brazil.

From the south of Bahia and to the north of Pernambuco the beaches basically show that idyllic landscape, and Maragogi, belonging to the northeastern state of Alagoas but very close to the border with Pernambuco, is practically the geographical center of this region, and therefore is one of the options most similar to that ideal of the Brazilian Caribbean offered by the northeast Brazil .

Natural Pools

Formed among the reefs of Maragogi, three natural pools stand out, the most famous being the Welsh (which are the main and the largest in the region, see in satellite map ), they are 6 kilometers from the coast and can be reached by boat and hired tours with guides in agencies or directly on the beach, in these pools you can snorkel or dive between waters crystalline, coral and colorful fish. As in Porto de Galinhas schedules to enjoy this trip are limited by the state of the tide , which should be low , so that those who want to make the trip independently of agencies should control the state of the tide, also as the schedule is limited in high season the surroundings of the pools are overcrowded with boats and it is important to note that there is a daily limit of visitors, which means that in high season it is better to hire the Welsh tour in advance.
