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 someone prefers, there is a bicycle route and a walking boardwalk.

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

This is a very long beach, with lots of facilities like bars, restaurants, beach vendors, chair and umbrella rental, water sports, toilets. Some parts of the beach are busier than others. In some places there is a lot of litter and the sea can be a little rough but there are lifeguards there to advise you and to keep a... More
