Guaratuba

(3.9/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, sightseeing, historic sites
With golden sands, bright blue sea, and mountains framing the picturesque city of Guaratuba, it seems as though it were made for tourists. In reality, the city grew for reasons of defense and by royal decree, after the king of Portugal ordered 200 couples to settle the area--deemed strategically significant--between the villages of Paranagua and the San Francisco river. Today, Guaratuba tourism revolves around its 22 km (14 mi) of sandy beaches, both on the bay and along the coast heading south. While the urban area certainly takes a backseat, its historical sites, humble whitewashed buildings, and enriching museums hold plenty of interest for those who can tear themselves away from the beach. With our world travel planner, Brazil vacations can be built around trips to Guaratuba and other destinations in Brazil.

Where to stay in Guaratuba

The eastern coast is the place to stay in Guaratuba: with the beaches and other attractions all located here, few accommodations operate on the city's northerly coast or in residential areas to the west. Stick to the coastal roads and you won't go far wrong, whether you want to splash out on a villa in a resort, complete with a private bit of beach, or you're looking for a simple, comfortable, and cost-effective guesthouse.
