Things to do in Praia do Toque

The beaches of Alagoas depend a lot on the volume of the tide for the trips to the natural pools that form when the water goes down. This is also the case at Praia do Toque: with the green and crystalline sea, one of the main attractions is to take a raft ride to get to know this phenomenon up close.

Take the opportunity to take your diving mask, as snorkeling in the natural pools of this beach is practically mandatory. In fact, the fish are so varied, and the water so transparent, that it is possible to observe them even from above the water – but of course the snorkel makes the experience special. If you want, you can even hire professional dives.



It is worth checking the tide table – or getting information from locals and jangadeiros in the region – to find out exactly how to take this tour, what is the best time to enjoy it, and any other questions you may have. There, it is very easy to find out about it, in addition to the fact that many inns combine with the guests themselves and offer this activity.

Praia do Toque is somewhat restricted, as it does not allow access by car, maintaining an atmosphere of tranquility along the shore. You can walk there, starting from nearby beaches such as Porto da Rua or São Miguel. The beach is highly recommended for those who prefer a quiet and empty place, with a paradisiacal setting framed by coconut trees.

Where to stay in Praia do Toque

It is possible to stay in beachfront accommodations in Praia do Toque, to enjoy the best possible way of this green and crystalline sea. It is even a good recommendation for those who want to see the natural pools, which are considered among the most beautiful in Alagoas. Staying there, you can wake up early and stay longer on the tour.

A useful tip for those who want to stay close to the beach is to be careful with their luggage, since the surrounding streets are all sandy, and this fact does not help those who tend to take care of the weight of the suitcase when traveling. As you will have to carry everything to your inn on the sand, try to take only the essentials to facilitate the displacement.



If you prefer a region with more options for restaurants and entertainment at night, in addition to greater infrastructure within walking distance, choose to stay in the center of São Miguel dos Milagres. In the city there are also excellent accommodations to choose from.
