Bodyboarding here with local friends was amazing! Plenty of small shop along the way to get food and drinks! Cool at low tide to explore! If the waves seem average , just wait for the set waves, they line up the entire length of this place and roll thru with authority!

I would rather go to tombo beach if I am looking for some crashing and nice waves to surf, but Pernambuco is some sort of lake combined

This is the best beach in Guarujá. You can either rent a house for a season or stay at Softel Guarujá Jequitimar. The beach is calm with a very good view a warm ocean watter. In case you are in São Paulo and don't want to spend much time in the road going to the north coast of Sao Paulo,... More

It is a beautiful beach: white sand, clear water, not so many people, but we were mugged at gun point in the middle of the day. It was not very pleasant. Especially because our two-year-old son was with us. We called the cops and nobody answered.

Reminds me of where Edward took Bella for their Honeymoon in the Twilight Movie. Loved the high waves, low sand, and cleanliness. Disliked the lack of food available on the beach except from the hotel. The beach didn't really have a "personality". It is very family friendly. Since I was alone, this was not a plus for me.

I had a very different view of Pernambuco Beach. It was very expensive to rent chairs and beach umbrellas, and also to park the car. The water was full of jellyfish, which made me very worried about children.

The most beautiful beach in Guaruja. After the inauguration of the Sofitel Hotel and the small Jequiti mall , that area became perfect. It is quite and clean.

Great place to visit and spend a whole day surfing. Close to restaurants and shopping area of Sofitel Jequitimar. Have fun! If you have a chance, visit São Pedro beach as well!

The landscape is nice, rather small sandy beach but somehow romatic. In principle simple but with all the palm trees along somehow Caribic feeling....
