Nice walking !!

Enseada is a more then 5 km long beach, soft to walk on. There are lots of standing barracks along the way selling all sorts of food and drinks. Nice to stroll on the sand or, if... read more

Used to spend my holidays on this beach and it was always The beach. It was a huge disappointment to see it now so dirty and ugly. It is missing maintenance. It is missing safety. It is missing life.

There are several beaches at Guarujá and Enseada is not a good one. None of Guaruja's or Santos' beaches are comparable with the ones at Rio or up at the north of Brazil. However, if you find yourself there, I suggest you go beaches on the south of Enseada, like Asturias, or Iporanga. And if you have time, travel to... More

Quiet locale this time of year. We practically had the entire beach to ourselves. Plenty of bars and food establishments near by for snacks and a refill on my caiprihina

Nice beach, very long, good for sea bath but to crowd during summer, holidays, and with risk of rubbering. Dificult to park, and risk os car dammage.

This beach is only one hour drive from São Paulo, and to arrive there you will face a nice road, through petrobras petrol factory. Ok, it is not beautiful but it is amazing to see the huge impact of making petrol on environment when you drive from São Paulo to this beach. Nevertheless, the beach is huge, and beautiful. The...

There's so many restaurants with sun umbrellas. Sometimes the tide is high, so be careful!!! And be careful with your valuables, there are so many thieves in high season, from December to March, but be careful the whole year!!!

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.

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 dark you can only go in groups of I would sy minimum 4 people and stay together
