Maragogi is the gateway to a cluster of eight closely knit cities along the northern coast of the state of Alagoas, Brazil called the Coral Coast or the “Costa dos Corais”. Besides Maragogi, these towns include Japaratinga, Porto de Pedras, and São Miguel dos Milagres, Passo de Camaragibe and Barra de Santo Antonio. Maragogi's twenty-two kilometers of beaches are on a wide lagoon formed by a continuous tropical reef that stretches over 130 kilometers along Brazil’s Northeast Coast between the states of Pernambuco and Alagoas. The region’s never ending reefs are perfect for scuba diving or snorkeling either at the reef or just beyond. Many visitors prefer to wander along the reef (using appropriate footwear) or its pristine beaches looking for sea life or shells, admiring the coral formations, or to just relax marveling at the constantly changing color of the Caribbean-like, clear waters.
