Guaiu Beach, Santo Andre

4.6
#3 of 14 in Beaches in Santa Cruz Cabralia
Beach Nature / Park
You can almost feel your pulse slow when you arrive at Guaiu Beach. A couple of small guesthouses contribute all of the infrastructure you'll find at this expansive stretch of pristine sand backed by miles of lush vegetation. You can bathe in the shallow, clear sea or in the river that flows into it. Walking, reading, eating, and watching shrimp fishermen cast their nets into the sea top the list of activities. Guesthouses serve up homemade pastas with the sea's bounty. Just remember to bring cash because most places do not take cards.

Where to stay in Santa Cruz Cabralia

Most accommodations in Santa Cruz Cabralia lie in the relatively small area within a few blocks of the beach and the coastal highway, south of the mouth of the river. Just about anywhere in town lies within easy walking distance of the ocean and historic sites, though to access the older part of town you'll need to hike up the bluff occupied by the church. While a few larger hotel complexes do exist in the city, the majority of places to stay come in the form of "pousadas," essentially family- or independently run guesthouses, bungalows, and bed and breakfasts that often occupy historical buildings, and generally at budget-friendly rates.
