great view and good sand but low security at night

Fairly clean and not too crowded. The water was maybe a little too warm to my taste. Be careful not bringing fancy câmeras, clothes and gadgets to the beach. Be aware that after... read more

Don't come to Guarujá and don't come to this beach. Medical waste washed up on the sand overnight. The poverty was depressing. Muggings were frequent. I felt like a prisoner in my rental apartment.

This is a very long beach, with lots of facilities like bars, restaurants, beach vendors, chair and umbrella rental, water sports, toilets. Some parts of the beach are busier than others. In some places there is a lot of litter and the sea can be a little rough but there are lifeguards there to advise you and to keep a... More

The beach was quiet and nice. In November is a great month to go as it's not crowded and already has the sun shining on the sky. There's a lot os kiosks and they are helpful and friendly. But expensive.

It was a bit quiet as we went in the middle of July (off-peak); and there weren't any sunbeds, only chairs that can not be flattened completely. The sand and waves were lovely and there are a few bars around for beers and snacks.

The beach is very clean and surrounded by mountains, the water is just very blue but at this time of the year is very cold. There isn't a lot of noise and not full of people on weekdays. I'm sure this changes on weekends but it's still a place worth a visit. There are many places to eat, although expensive... More

It is a great place to enjoy with family and friends. There are a lot of other beachs near with different characteristics which you can surf, practice sports or simply relax.
