First off...the beach is stunning! ....away from the crowds. Entrance down the dirt road looks promising and secluded until you pass the entry gate. Then loads of big buses, a packed parking lot and people everywhere. At least 50 dune buggies, beach cars, boats, kiosks,...More

The place and the beach is so nice. If you travel with small babys perhaps It`s not a good option because you have a long way to the beach. Lots of people arrive with boogie. It`s a classic!

This is a beautiful beach for a day trip. It is only about an hour from Maceió and several tour companies offer bus rides to this beach. There are many barracas where you can enjoy your peixe grilhada or camarão lunch with a cold beer....More

Well, I liked Gunga Beach but when you get into the water...better be careful, because it gets deep really fast. 2 or 3 steps......I recommend but with some restrictions.
