Great beach near everything

If you need chairs and good service, just get them for free at Gonzaga´s Drinks (if you buy drinks from them).

This beach is also great for doing morning runs/workouts and I did a couple of training sessions in the morning. Plenty of space and the sea was beautiful to swim in. Fantastic beach with very fine sand!

Nice and clean and very big beach. It was off season so we were alone there. Some people were jogging there as we do. There are facilities as well. But locals do not recommend santos beaches. Some beaches outside should be much more beautiful.

A very nice beach with a garden all along the boardwalk and stunning mountains and city view around the whole stretch of beach. A lovely day out and right in the town so plenty to do everywhere.
