Even though I was raised in Santos and my family still owns an oceanfront apartment at Gonzaga beach, every time I see these beach gardens I feel closer to heaven. Five miles of palm trees, green grass that looks like a carpet and over 3,500 species of flowers make this place the #1 among the shorelines on the planet.

I enjoyed the garden by the sea, very beautiful and pleasant. The place is safe and very nice for walks in the late afternoon with the family. There are several restaurants and shopping malls close by for a snack, an ice cream or dinner. I did not like was the dirt left on the beach for swimmers. The city does... More

A nice walk to see the beach, the people, the atmosphere. You can walk about 5 km, but you need pay atention. It is not unsafe, but, here, there and everywhere, travellers must be careful.

I am sooooooo not a fan of Santos, which I consider to be gritty, grimy and unsafe. The waterfront gardens, however, are lovely, peaceful and soothing.

If you are the kind of person who loves plants, you are going to love our gardens. It is so nice to take a morning walk along it. It is something that really makes my day! There are so many different kinds of flowers and they blossom all over the year. It means that you can always appreciate some flowers... More

I've been to many beach cities in the world and have never seen 5 miles of gardens beach front. In many towns tha beach view is blocked by resorts or by high scryscapers. In the case of Santos there are gorgeous gardens along the beach were you can stroll or run for 5 miles. This will change your perception of... More

Very nice attraction, you can walk kilometres, one side the gardens, the other side the beach and the sea. Also, a lot of places to eat, to drink a soda or simply to seat, looking at the sea. Only one big problem, be aware of the bikers, they are everywhere, thinking they are the world, not respecting above all elderly... More

Definitely the most beautiful place in Santos. It is very nice to have a walk during night in the Gardens.

Borders the longest beach we have ever seen. Very clean and nice to walk along. Lots of benches to stop and rest on.

It doesn't matter if you want just jooging in the morning, or late afternoon. It doesn't matter if you just want to take a beachside walk, or having fun at the beach. The Beach Edge Gardens, one of the largest beach gardens in the world is a must-see in Santos. Not only it's a postcard of the city itself, but... More
