Two times a month, the reefs off Maragogi become very special. This is at the low tides of the full and new moons. The day before and the day after comprise the best three day window in each case. There are places that you can walk out to the beach IF you have tennis or beach shoes with good rubber soles. We walk out from the Antunes beach, it is a bit longer, but the tropical pools are large, deep and spectacular. Just check with the fishermen and watch your time, start out at least 45 minutes before low tide and come back to the beach no later than 45 minutes after the tide has changed if you are walking. Of course, you can find fishermen with sailing jangadas and have a real adventure of several hours!
