Guaruja

Pearl of the Atlantic

Less than 100 km (60 mi) from Sao Paolo, the busy beach town of Guaruja remains unconditionally devoted to tourism, charming visitors with more than 20 well-developed beaches tailor-made for surfing, swimming, and soaking up the sun. A pleasant alternative to the giant state capital, a Guaruja holiday allows you to create your own unique experience. If you don't mind big crowds and wish to access all the modern conveniences of a top tourist destination, don't miss the centrally located beaches, flanked by high-rise luxury hotels, shops, and restaurants. For a quieter vacation in Guaruja, head to one of the small fishing settlements dotting the coastline, which manage to preserve their slow pace of life in the face of mass tourism. To arrange what you want to do in Guaruja, use our Brazil family vacation planner.
