Nothing to recommend here, just a long beach with water too brown to swim in it Nothing like Bahia I think Aracaju has an upkeep problem, many places run down, dirty and nothing I would ever return to

Atalaia beach has no structure, so it makes very hard to spend the day at the beach. Although the water is very clean, it's brownish because the river meets the ocean
