Create an itinerary including Frances Beach
The best place to go surfing and swimming near Maceió is Frances Beach--where the waves are tall and safe, and there are no sharks or sharp coral reefs to worry about. On Maceió's south coast, this beach paradise welcomes you into its warm, bright blue and emerald-green waters for an unforgettable experience including snorkeling, scuba diving, and bodyboarding.

The left side of Praia do Francês (Francês Beach) bustles with activity from several bars and restaurants. This side has many beach alcoves with smaller pools that provide an intimate setting for swimming amongst the calm waves protected by reefs. On the opposite side of the beach, you'll find a laid-back surfer crowd attracted by strong, wild waves that promote championship surfing. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Praia do Frances fast, fun, and easy.
