Main beach in Guarujá

Busy in the high season but perfectly ok at any other time. Difficult to park - so keep the car on back streets but easy to walk from apartments and centre of town.

Great beach to spend your time with family and kids. A good place where you can buy drinks and some food is Casa de Pedra. They provide you umbrella and beach chairs.

Beautiful beach, good for walks, lots of restaurants around. There's also a little shopping Centre nearby and you can even find Burger King if you don't fancy seafood!

It's a nice beach of a good size to walk along. Can be a bit rough for swimming at some points of the year. There are a variety of stalls to sit at and spend the day, however, i do recommend Farol629 because there, as well as beach service, you get a restaurant area to get away from the sun... More

This beach can be described as one of the widest beaches of the world that is surrounded by high-rise building overlooking the ocean with a great range of international cuisine and many reatail shops.

Back to the 90s it was a great place to stay and spend holidays. Now area still nice, nice building has been erected, but not enough safe. Too many beggars on the street, as well pick pockets, and no security any where around for your ask for help. Would not recommend walk on the promenade in the evening.

Sand soft like flour, clean water, fun waves, good food close by most of the time and a relaxed atmosphere all around, what else do you need? Perfect for a stroll in the morning, and great for hanging out and swimming during the day. A big plus which can't be said about the praias in Rio, the men and women... More

I've had my flat there for 15 years and it continues being my best place on earth - that is excluding January till Carnival, when it becomes truly very unpleasant. A peaceful, welcoming beach 10 months of the year with good weather and excellent jogging, food, views, etc., it is a nightmare during the high season - over priced, dangerous,... More

It is the best closest beach to Sao Paulo city (far 100 kilometers).You can go to Guaruja by the very modern Imigrantes road and Conego Rangoni road,by car or if you prefer by intermunicipal bus that you can take at the Jabaquara´s metro station in São Paulo city.The buses depart each 15 minutes.
