Maragogi is located in the state of Alagoas and it is the second most visited tourist destination after Maceio, the state capitol. If you like scuba diving or snorkeling this is the perfect place for you, for its never ending reefs.

Check out some attractions:

Galés: Extraordinary pools formed by reef located 3 kilometers from the coast. Snorkeling is the great attraction, but the site is also used by scuba diving schools for discovery scuba and check-out dives. Branchy coral and a variety of tropical fish create an attractive and safe environment for beginners.

Trafalgar: This Dutch ship that sank in the eighteenth century is completely broken up. But it is still possible to see the masts and a large anchor. Much of the wreckage is located in a shallow water, on top of the reefs. Visibility is less than 10 meters, but there is a lot of marine life at the site, including many sea cucumbers. The constant ocean swell makes diving somewhat difficult.
