Maceió, capital of the small state of Alagoas, is an interesting tourist destination. Not only because of the beautiful beaches within and just outside the city limits, but also because of the local history, culture, and gastronomy. In 2009, I spent a week in a hotel in Ponta Verde, on the coast. You can find a considerable number of hotels in Ponta Verde, while you can find delicious food and drinks in the neighboring Pajuçara. From Pajuçara, you can visit, at low tide, shoals with flat-bottomed sailing boats, the so-called jangadas. Between the beach on the mainland and the shoals, the sea level is then so low that natural pools (piscinas naturais) are formed. They disappear at high tide. In the picture you can see a reflection of Pajuçara Beach with a single palm tree and – black – sail of a jangada.
