Porto de Pedras Attractions

Porto de Pedras is located in a privileged area of ​​the coast of Alagoas, being home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the state. In addition to the sea, another great attraction of the region is ecotourism. The city is small and quiet, bathed by the Manguaba River, which also passes through Japaratinga.

One of the great highlights of the place is the Porto de Pedras Lighthouse, which offers a wonderful view of the meeting of the Manguaba River with the green sea of ​​that region of Alagoas.



But the city's beaches are the real spectacles of the place.

Patacho Beach

Praia do Patacho is the most famous, with crystal clear waters of the kind that make the state worthy of the nickname “Brazilian Caribbean”. It was even considered the most beautiful beach in Spain, with coconut trees surrounding the shore, and a quiet stretch of sand, without infrastructure or street vendors.

Lage beach

Praia de Lage (just like that, with a “g”) is next to Patacho and is another quiet option, with little commerce, ideal for those looking for relaxing days in front of the sea. In both places, it's worth bringing food for the day – but don't forget to take the trash back afterwards.

Tattoo

Finally, the village of Tatuamunha is an excellent option for an ecological tour on the outskirts of Porto de Pedras. This charming place has colorful houses and a friendly center, but what really steals attention are the manatees. you can take a raft ride down the river to get to know these animals up close.
