Gonzaga Beach, Santos

4.0
#2 of 8 in Outdoors in Santos
Easy access to the city makes Gonzaga Beach a popular stop for locals looking to relax for a couple of hours. Rent a beach chair and an umbrella--make sure the price you're quoted for the pair is a flat rate and not by the hour--then grab a spot near the water where you can dip your feet in its refreshing foam. You'll be approached by snack sellers peddling ice cream, churros, and chips, but drinks are purchased at the stands that sporadically line the beach. Visit in the morning to avoid crowds, but come back at night to see the beach romantically lit by strings of bulbs. Make Gonzaga Beach part of your personalized Santos itinerary using our Santos vacation planner.

    Praia do Gonzaga is very busy, not only on the beach as well as on the sidewalk. There we can find people enjoying the Sun, walking on the Boardwalk, biking, sitting on the benches talking. It is very pleasant to stay.

Where to stay in Santos

Look to the west of Avenida Dr. Washington Luiz for the greatest choice in accommodations, with the main cluster of popular places located here. Choose from chain hotels both simple and luxurious, as well as characterful, family-run pousadas tucked away on residential and commercial side streets. Move farther from the coast to find backpacker-friendly hostels and apartment rentals, ideal for those wishing to keep costs down or stay for longer periods of time.
