If you like to discover practically empty paradises, to enjoy a beautiful beach in a super quiet environment, heading to the south coast of Alagoas may be your ideal choice. If you're interested in Coruripe, keep reading this guide to find out all about this amazing little land.

Coruripe Attractions

Of course, the sea is the main highlight of Coruripe, with quiet shores, little movement of people, crystal clear waters to cool off, reefs, as with so many beaches in the state, natural pools that are formed, depending on the tide. Coconut trees shape this landscape, which still has a lighthouse to complete the coastal scenery.

Pontal do Coruripe Beach is one of the main ones in the municipality, but with a reduced extension. Lagoa do Pau, on the other hand, is bigger and a little more visited (but the public is, in large part, residents of the city itself). Praia Miaí de Cima is also another slightly busier option, with golden sand and slightly rougher waters, ideal for sports.

More isolated, Praia do Gunga is one of the most beautiful in Coruripe. The sea around the strip of sand varies in shades of blue and green, and the infrastructure there does not disappoint. Make no mistake, even more “distant”, it attracts a good number of visitors and even offers unusual tours, such as the buggy ride to appreciate the cliffs in the region.
