The origin of the name Maragogi is of the old Tupi that means "river of the cats of the bush", was chosen that name due to the river that bathes the municipality. The municipality of Maragogi is located in the state of Alagoas, in the state of Maceió.<br><br>One of the main tourist attractions in the state, the tourist attractions that attract most in Maragogi are the beaches of Peroba, São Bento, Barra Grande and Burgalhau. Beaches of natural pools, calm sea, white sands and reefs where it is possible to bathe next to colorful fish.<br><br>Another strong point in Maragogi is its rural tourism in the farms Cachoeira and Marrecas.

Probably the best beaches in the most relaxing atmosphere in North East Brazil. There are 13 different beaches on the island, some very tranquil and others perfect for kitesurfers. you can try each one of them for 2 weeks and spent your last day in your favorite one ;-)

A praia é muito bonita, mas quem for de uber não consegue usar o aplicativo para retornar. O projeto peixe boi que era muito importante para essa espécie ameaçada de extinção está fechado. O forte orange está em ruínas e abandonado. The beach is pretty beautiful. It's not possible ask uber for coming back, apparently it doesn't work there. It very sad that the project manatee is closed. It was essential for preserve the native specie that is in risk to be extinct The Fort orang is complete abandoned in ruins. So disappointed

May be my expectations were to high, but I went to visit the advertised Manatee Center and it is FULLY CLOSED, I was looking for crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches, and water was not clear and the sand not too white. Visiting the old Orange Fort is great, but is under Restoration, so most of it is closed.

We drove from Recife to Itamaraca yesterday. It started with some rain, but the sky cleared up later. We met up with some friends who rented a beach house. The water was warm but rather shallow during the low tide. There was a slow current from the river mouth. We had some beans, fries, and fried fish for lunch. Rather relaxing. However, the mosquitoes were quite vicious during sunset. Overall, a lovely relaxing day trip.

Very beautiful beach. It has an old fort that nowadays has lots of craft stores selling local crafts. The beach has white sand and if you have the chance Walt to the Coroa do Aviao, which is a beautiful island. Both places are beautiful. You will find cheap food and cheap friends there. People are very friendly. Good place to visit
