Barra de São Miguel is a resort town nestled between tropical rainforests and pristine golden sand beaches in Alagoas, on the northeastern coast of Brazil. As part of the ecological route dotted with coral reefs, fishing villages, coconut palms, and sugarcane fields, soak in the serene setting of this relatively sleepy town. The beautiful surroundings provide for rest and relaxation as the azure waters of the South Atlantic Ocean lap the rocky shores. Enjoy the calm and warm waters, especially within the natural saltwater pool frequented by locals and travelers alike. Accessible by boardwalks and trails, the Atlantic forests inland are home to exotic flora and fauna. Walking about the town’s streets, you can also visit Teka Rendeira, a traditional lacemaker, and learn about the history of this local handicraft.
