Garopaba Beach, Garopaba
(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Once a fishing village that supported an idyllic life for fishermen, Garopaba Beach 's beauty caused a town to grow around the humble village. On your visit, you'll see a bustling, little metropolis with houses dotting the hills rising from the sea. There you can rent a room at a pousada (a private bed and breakfast), or at the city's one hotel. Spend your days on Garopaba Beach relaxing with a book in hand, sunbathing, swimming or come by night and join a party on the beach. During the season, the town's population swells in size and the beach is jam-packed with umbrellas and vendors selling food.

  • The region offers many restaurants, bars and shops. Next month I visited there was no kiosks, stalls, etc. Despite the strip of sand to be close, you can enjoy a walk, because the beach is clean. As for the beauty of the place, depends on the eyes of the beholder. It is a beach that lacks investments and changes to please the most demanding as it is a rustic Beach and new in tourism.

  • Isn't the prettiest or the most extensive nor has the best views. However if you're staying in Garopaba is having more hand. Which can be visited without removing your car from the garage and which has many restaurants in front to it. All that makes it interesting when wanting to hang out near the sea. And an advantage most. Almost at its southern end is water na mouth with the best pasteis of the area.
