Maragogi has a typical tropical climate, with warm to hot temperatures and high relative humidity all throughout the year. However, these conditions are relieved by a near absence of extreme temperatures and trade winds blowing from the ocean. January is the warmest month, with mean maxima of 31 °C and minima of 22 °C and more sun; July experiences the coolest temperatures, with means of 26 °C and 17 °C and more rain.

Maragogi has a tropical forest. Rainforests are characterized by high rainfall, with definitions setting minimum normal annual rainfall between 2,000 mm (about 78 inches or 2 meters) and 1700 mm (about 67 inches). The soil can be poor because high rainfall tends to leach out soluble nutrients. 

Attractions / things to do:

  • Maragogi is a beach town with the typical cluster of pousadas (guesthouses) and restaurants along its waterfront, old-fashioned sailboats bobbing in the sea, and wide, flat beaches where local kids play soccer every evening at sunset. 
  • Maragogi is one of the most visited destinations in the state, thanks to its major draw: the sandbars and reefs that make up the Galés marine reserve, 6km offshore, where the underwater scene is rich with colorful sea life. Although the reefs are a big draw, the town itself has been developing rapidly into a tourist destination in its own right, with new hotels and restaurants opening periodically.
  • Beaches in Maragogi have calm waters, without strong waves, with coral reefs and fine sands. During low tide, sand banks emerge forming natural pools, known as Croas (5 km away from the coast) and Galés (6 km away). “Jangadas” and boats can take tourists to these pools. 
  • On the beach’s southern tip, between Vila de Japaratinga and Pontal, visitors find the less urbanized beaches with 20-m high sea cliffs. 
  • Maragogi beach is near Maragogi River, with calm waves, flat sands.
  • In the city of Maragogi, the natural spaces filled with palm trees stand out, such as the Barra Grande, Peroba, São Bento and Burgalhau beaches. The calm sea of these beaches, turquoise in color, is ideal for contemplative diving, especially in the natural pools formed by coral reefs and coral reefs. 
  • Maragogi is famous for its natural pools which are about 6 km off the coast. 
  • The pools formed by coral reefs are known for their shallow, crystal clear waters and the diversity of marine animals living there. You just have to look at the water to see a lot of coral, fishes, shells and urchins.
  • The largest set of pools, known as Galés de Maragogi marine reserve shelters crystal-clear ponds, coral reefs, and colorful fish. This pool is a great choice for diving. Its waters are deeper when compared to the also well-known Taocas and Barra Grande. Scuba diving in Galés is an incredibly relaxing experience. Down there, there’s only the sound of your breath and the incredible diversity of marine life.
  • In Barra Grande, to the north of Galés, people prefer diving with a snorkel and mask, since the waters are shallower. For children, that’s also the best choice.
  • In Taocas, the pools are smaller and hold fewer people, making it an even more special experience.
