Destination Maceió, capital of the state of Alagoas.
Episode 6. Praia do Gunga, a paradisaical beach resort.
Gunga Beach is located at about 35 km from Maceió. We traveled to Gunga by bus. When we passed the entrance gate, it took more ten minutes before we arrived on the parking lot. Not because the road was very long, but it was an unpaved road full of holes. Beyond the parking lot, we encountered a number of pavilions with restaurants and bars. It is easy to imagine that his beach resort is very popular among tourists, and that the prices are adapted to the popular demand. The bars and restaurants offer an interesting variety of warm meals and snacks.
Our group, which consisted of many students, hurried like a herd of frolic dogs to the beach, and occupied a number of beach tables. Soon everyone had taken off the shirts and shorts. The first beach pictures were taken. The first cold beers and cold coconuts were consumed. A fresh start for a relaxing day on this paradisaical beach. Not everyone was about to sit all day, and to consume the beers and snacks. Small groups started to wander on the beach, each with another destination. I could choose between three groups, and I joined a group of three female students who were about to walk into the same direction as I already had planned for myself. As a kind of reward, I took some pictures of the three beauties.
Later that afternoon, I was asked to take more pictures of the excited group. Crazy pictures, of crazy people… This picture collection still remembers us of the unforgettable day at the tropical paradise of Gunga Beach…
