The state of Alagoas is rarely visited by non-Brazilian tourists however has some incredibly stunning and near deserted beaches for those looking for beach tranquillity and to get away from the crowds.
All along the coastline of the state are reefs and a number of fine beaches with crystalline water and white sands.
In the north of Alagoas you will find the beautiful pools of Maragogi. These inland natural swimming pools are breathtaking and at low tide you are able to don a snorkel and a mask and get up close with marine life to the extent that fish will come and feed from your hands amidst beautifully coloured corals.
South of Maceio you can find equally as good beaches at Barra de São Miguel which offers luxurious accommodation options for those looking for privacy and escapism on a Brazil holiday.
