  • The white beach is a pretty simple place to stay young and adventurous, guesthouses quite simple and campsites. Good for surf on one side and the other, near the island. My day was actually hiking, the trail until there is good, even with a kid (not too small), you can drink some juice, a beach and back, you can take a shower of fresh water in one of the bars before returning.

  • After searching for beaches that were not point of "careless person", found the white beach, or affectionately called Prainha Branca. Me and my girlfriend by bus, departing from the bus terminal of Jabaquara, with the Ultra road to Bertioga. Our journey started very good, clean bus, polite driver, note 10 to the company. After 1 hour and 40, enjoying the scenery we arrived in Bertioga. We went down and in 10 minutes of walking, we arrive on the ferry that makes the crossing from Bertioga to the Guarujá. There you can enjoy the sea with several fishing boats. After a few minutes of wait we boarded the ferry, a simple but very tasty. We crossed to Guarujá and as soon as we landed, we follow people to arrive at some kind of portal that indicates the entrance to Prainha Branca through a track. We already knew that the journey would be long, but we didn't expect to be so exhausting. There is a fork, two minutes after entering the portal: on one side, ground from clay, on the other, "paved". Put quotation marks around paved because much of the trail was cemented cobbled irregularly, which made the walk more exhausting. Tip: don't go carrying a lot of weight alone. Despite the weariness, the walk was hot, full of green. Almost there, we started to see the first houses of local residents without any rustic luxury. We saw too many and many campsites, playing since songs of Raul Seixas until some Reggae band for me unknown. This beach tends to attract that kind of crowd, reggeiros, surfers, hippies, which is good, because it makes the pleasant Beach for everyone, since there does not exist a lot of freshness. After 20 and a few minutes of walking, we arrive at the famous White Beach. Of guy's we notice the difference with the beaches often visited by "careless person": a little dirt. The sand, cute and thick, is really white, as the name of the beach and the water very clean. After we organize in a corner of the beach, we went to the sea. We already know that the beach was tumbling, i.e. with sudden holes in the sand, which can be dangerous, combined with the strong current of the sea, but anything that common sense does not work. There are lifeguards on the beach unsafe areas and signaling for bathers. We stayed all day, the beach was filling, however, nothing to compare with the plethora of umbrellas as the other beaches have, so that we could leave our belongings without protection on top of the beach mat, because it was possible to keep an eye on it while we were bathing. There are a few kiosks there, for all tastes. How do we get food from home, don't buy anything other than a full on Acai "tent of the Tati", very good by the way, modest R$15,00. We left the beach at 14:30, so we can take the bus back to 16:10. Our return was like that song by Wanderley Cardoso: "the picnic was good, but the back is that it was so sad." Leave that place is really a fight, so beautiful that is before we go, we go into a site that had a shower and some stalls selling souvenirs from the beach, how to tie dye shirts, Reggae, necklaces, etc. We use the shower to get the sand out of our body. Unfortunately we found no bathroom to change clothes on the way. Finally, we start again go that trail grueling, now more difficult because of accumulated fatigue during the day, but that is definitely not the way to get back once more. NOTE: there are two other beaches accessible through walking, the beach and the Camburi Beach, in addition to an island, also easily accessed, that unfortunately not visit because of our belongings, but that visit without a doubt on our next trip to Prainha Branca. Good points:-very nice beach, well cared for by the residents; Negatives:-the track is really tiring, especially on the back.

  • Good beach as the name, brança sand, fine restaurants, popular price. Site accessible by trail or boat. Easy-medium difficulty trail, has steps and can be slippery on rainy days.
