The beach is beautiful whide and clean. They are cleaning every early morning. The sand is nice and soft. Good place to be in the summer.all over beach bars where you can enjoy a nice refreshing drink. Showers and toilets are available every 2, 3 hundred meters.

You can take free surf lessons at the surf school there, and of course hang out on the beach and drink caipirinhas

A very nice, clean and safe beach. Lots of activity for all ages. Used a lot by locals. Apparently the East side from Escultura Tomie is the safest. The beach is cleaned soptless every morning by the local administration, and it's a pleasure to see a nice and clean beach. The garden between the road and the beach is the... More

Commom beach in Brazil. Has a good water to bath and play. Lots of good restaurants around across the street. It is usually not crowed beach. I feel safe while i was there. There are chairs and umbrellas to rent if you do not have yours.

Praia do Gonzaga is my favourite beach under the sun. The white sand is like a powder, the building behind and relatively clean ocean. What else do you need? Ok. maybe beautiful woman, but I don't have to mention about brazilian girls :)

I liked the beach Gonzaga: the pleasant temperature of the water, calm sea with few waves, the presence of many life saving and police that make the safe and organized place. a Gonzaga Beach advantage is that the stalls offer beach chairs for free, but the price of food and drink is expensive. What I did not like was the... More

This is a good beach close to the popular shopping area. The beach is quite long and spacious but crowded during weekends and holidays. The sand is not the best you can find in Brazil nor the water the cleanest but its close to the city center and not bad at all. All in all a good beach to stroll... More
