I've been to Caribbean, Greek Islands, California, Hawaii, Côte D'Azur, Italian Riviera, and so on. Then, I found out that the most beautiful attraction in a shoreline was at Ponta da Praia Beach, just a few miles away from home. Watching the sunset there while sipping a beer and tasting a shrimp is simply awesome!

Quiet, safe and a fantastic view of all the Santos beaches. Specially near MacDonalds You can find more free space in the sands. But aware of your safety: DO NOT use jewerly, expensive sunglasses, and Don't show off too much your cell phone or digital cam. Just for be safer.

I have gone a couple of times to Santos since it is fairly close to Sao Paulo. Nevertheless, it is not worth it. If you drive an hour more, you can find a better beach.

Ponta da Praia is known for being the quietest beach in Santos. One of the mains reasons due to the location (the furthest point in Santos from Downtown). But it is a great place to sit down at the beach and enjoy a quiet and peaceful day. However, I would not recommend going to the water, since this beach is... More

this beach is between gonzaga, the central beach, and miramar, the biggest shopping center of santos. it has nothing special in it, a bit far away from everywhere and no beach bars or restaurants. maybe good for couples who look for some quite, but than there is a sligth danger of crime, sometimes robberies are been reported in the area.
