Gonzaga Beach, Santos

(4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This beach is ideal for those with young children because it is quieter, with less people (which decreases the risk of children getting lost) and has the police patrol and lifeguard as the others! You don't have to take chairs and parasol because the barracks has all this structure with a cost that can be spent on consumption in own tent (get ready with the high prices of drinks and side dishes!) Anyway, for those who don't like a lot of noise and are keen to enjoy quietly the family and the beach, you're in the right place!

  • Have tents and chairs and parasol by only consumption, without the theft charge for this as some places do rio for example. Has free showerhead provided by City Hall and public bathroom. Good place to take a walk along the shore with Boardwalk and extensive bikelane. Unfortunately the water of the beach is dirty. See various objects and coloration of the water does not inspire any conifnaça. Besides the smell not very nice. Recommend penalties for sunbathing.

  • Beautiful beach with coconut trees, one of the world's most beautiful boardwalks. In my view, more beautiful than the river Boardwalk.
