From Recife: Maragogi Beach Day Trip

1. From Recife: Maragogi Beach Day Trip

Your beach adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Recife and heads towards Maragogi, also known as the Brazilian Caribbean. Arrive at the resort town and feel immersed in the vibrant yet peaceful atmosphere of this coastal location. The first stop of the day is Burgalhau beach, where you can set up camp for the day at the local operator’s base point. From here you can make your plan of action for the day and decide what activities you want to do with the help of your friendly guides. There’s plenty to see and do in Maragogi and the day is yours to enjoy. Spend some time soaking up the sunshine on the stunning white sandy beaches, then cool off in the refreshing sea. Pickup a snorkel set and go in search of marine life in the crystal clear waters, or hop on board a boat for a sail around the shoreline. You can also opt to visit the Galés of Maragogi, a set of stunning natural pools just 6 km from the coast, or rent a buggy and head off for an exploration of your own. At the end of the afternoon, head back to the base point for the return trip to Recife.

What people are saying about Recife

Very nice place! Arrival without problems. I would do it again.

The journey worked great. If you live outside the pick-up area, you meet at 6:30 am at the organizer's office. After you have collected all, you drive just under an hour to a meeting point to collect more guests. At 9:45 o'clock we were on site and the day could start. On the spot there was the possibility to be on the way by ship or buggy. Both 60R $. I decided on the ship (starting around 10:30 am). There was unlimited caipirinha here. You drive to a small sandbank where several messengers meet and spend their time here. The water is incredibly beautiful! Here you will also find ice cream vendors, etc .. Nobody was intrusive. At noon we arrived back at the start. In the restaurant there is a buffet, it will be charged according to weight. The price was a bit high, for Europeans still okay. At 15:30 it went back. Too short, mMn. The guide could speak good English. Locally you spoke only Portuguese. But you come through.

First of all it’s 12 hours and not 8 as it says on the app. Basically, you travel to one beach only to be forced to book another tour to be transferred to another area where you can actually swim. It was ok but for me the amount of time it takes and the location you end up i. The end didn’t really worth it. Maybe for someone else it does. Plus side, the coach guide was very polite and tried to explain to me everything with his limited English skills.

I did 3 one day trips with Martur Viagens e Turismo GREAT tour company,, very reliable, on time and communicated well with me! My tour guide was so GREAT his name is *Baruque* He is so knowledgeable, excellent communication, very helpful and translation was brilliant, funny REALLY GREAT service to me.. I would very highly recommended Martur Viagens e Turismo and Baruque Great person and tour guide... Thank you very much !

It is a good way to have an overview of Recife from the water. There are parts in which the water is a bit edited.
