Very nice long sandy beach, very clean and free from bothersome hawkers trying to sell all sorts of unwanted items. Reassuring to see security patrols as well as marked areas which are safe to swim in. Plenty of beach bars where you can order an ice cold drink at normal prices though I wouldn't want to eat here and chose... More

Nothing to recommend here, just a long beach with water too brown to swim in it Nothing like Bahia I think Aracaju has an upkeep problem, many places run down, dirty and nothing I would ever return to

If you´re all for a rustic, natural experience, you´re going to love the scenary at the Atalaia Beach. The main avenue has great hotel options and excellent restaurants.

Atalaia beach is just like all the beaches in Aracaju. A vast extension of sand with a brownish yellow ocean. This color is due to two rivers that cross the state. I wouldn't recommend swimming here uf you're not a local. We have antibodies you guys don't. The structure of bars is poor and usually dirty. You'll see the same... More

Atalaia beach has no structure, so it makes very hard to spend the day at the beach. Although the water is very clean, it's brownish because the river meets the ocean

Best beach in Aracaju, good restaurants and bars. Good waves for surfing and bodysurfing and plenty of people to watch.
