Guaiu Beach, Santo Andre

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. Planning Santa Cruz Cabralia trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Visiting the North Shore, we were fortunate to go to beach. Nice place, quiet, no hawkers selling on the beach, has only three beach huts, try the crab cake at the Bar Elias, a delight. In fact it's tent has tables and Chaise in wood covered with straw, super cozy. The landscape and the beach are great, clean and very quiet, for those who want a quiet place is ideal. Always get there early because in Porto all stalls shut down the 5:00 pm.

  • Paradise Beach, little or almost no noise, sea green with coarse sand, very few huts with typical food, fresh seafood. For those who like quiet beach is the ideal place.

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.
