Considered by many to be the most beautiful beach in the state of Alagoas, the Gunga Beach is located in the municipality of Roteiro, very close to Barra de Sao Miguel, 33 km south of Maceio. The beach is surrounded by a giant coconut grove, a sea of calm and incredibly blue waters.

THE Gunga Beach It has a peninsula, which makes it even more paradisiacal. At its left end, you can see Barra de São Miguel, with dozens of kiosks and the meeting of the sea with the warm waters of Lagoa do Roteiro. On the other side are the wonderful cliffs of the Gunga, steep rocks of colored sand, sculpted by nature. To get to it, tourists can choose to take a buggy ride, or take a long walk.

Who wants to visit the place by boat, access is through the port of Barra de Sao Miguel, where it is possible to take boats or schooners, in a crossing that takes around 20 minutes. For those who choose to go by speedboat, there are two other types of tours offered and both leave at 8 am. The first includes a stop at the pools formed by the coral reefs that are found along the entire coast of Barra de Sao Miguel, and anchorage in Croas, large sandbanks that form at the mouth of Lagoa do Roteiro.

The second tour also includes the natural aquariums, then passes through the mangroves, located on Três Corações Island, and then through the cliffs of colored sand, and then disembark at the Gunga. In both itineraries, the tourist can choose the time to return to Barra, but it cannot go beyond 17:00. There is also the possibility to drive past the entrance to the coconut farm and cross the property for free. To enter, just identify yourself and respect the requests for the preservation of the place.

The colored sands of the cliffs of the gunga are used as raw material for the manufacture of bottles with colorful designs, sold in local craft shops.
