Maragojipe is located exactly at the point where Paraguaçu River meets Guaí River, forming a 30 meter wide lagoon, surrounded by approximately 30km of mangroves. It offers excellent conditions for nautical tourism, and has a docking bridge for large vessels.

The city still shelters in Caijá Port tens of canoes and saveiros (a kind of long and narrow fishing boat). The old vessels were used for the transport of a variety of goods in the interior of All Saints’ Bay until recently. Today, there are still some saveiros working together with the modern means of transport.
 

Like other cities of the region, Maragojipe has a strong Catholic tradition, but is also committed to Candomblé. This quiet city suffers a transformation during August, when they celebrate their patron saint, Saint Bartholomew.
