Patacho Beach – Travel Guide

A complete guide to plan your trip to Praia do Patacho. Write down the tips and enjoy a lot!

Perfect for those who like peace and tranquility, Praia do Patacho conquers everyone looking for a place to relax in front of the sea. And what's better than enjoying the incredible ocean of Alagoas to spend your holidays and renew your energies?

Located in Porto de Pedras, a municipality close to São Miguel dos Milagres, this part of the Alagoas coast has the advantage of being more reserved, unlike other busier destinations in the state. With intimate accommodations nearby, and tasty cuisine, Praia do Patacho is a true paradise to enjoy there.

Things to do in Patacho Beach

The sea at Praia do Patacho is green, calm and charming, especially in summer, when the waters are even more crystalline. The destination is ideal for those traveling as a couple, or looking for a private place to spend days in absolute peace. The main activity to do there is to enjoy the day at the beach under the constant sun, with dips to cool off.

When the tide is low, natural pools form on the reefs that decorate the waters a little further from the shore. There are raft trips organized by some fishermen who live there, with which it is possible to go to these deeper waters and observe the marine life.

An interesting phenomenon that usually happens there is the moon over the sea. At dusk, when the satellite is in full or nova phases, it is possible to observe it "rising" on the horizon, with the ocean in front to complete the show. For those staying in one of the inns on the beach, it's a must.

It is also common for visitors to leave Maragogi for tours in São Miguel dos Milagres, going to Praia do Patacho in a day trip scheme. So it is possible to get to know a little of the beauty of the place, but it is not possible to take advantage of the environment to relax. If this is the case, remember that there is no infrastructure on the beach and, therefore, it is interesting to bring food.

The Praia do Patacho region is very quiet, with a peaceful atmosphere of a fishing village. There are excellent beachfront inns for stays very close to the beach, and others in the surroundings that are also charming. There are options for all budgets and for different travel styles.

Choose to stay in the center of Porto de Pedras if you want to walk there at night, or if you want to have closer restaurants available. If peace is your goal, the closer to the sea, the better – and, in this case, a good tip is to Pousada Xue, where there is also a restaurant.
