Gonzaga Beach, Santos

4.2
#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.

  • The edge of the beach and perfect for children playgrounds, bicycle paths and wooded hiking trail. All very well maintained and clean.

  • Praia do Gonzaga has an excellent stretch of shoreline, with a beautiful square where you can enjoy a beautiful place to take pictures or simply be making conversation.

  • For those who like the beach filled with everything that's right is ideal! The strip of sand is very extensive and you can find a place with fewer people. But it's really hot near the sidewalk and most people are closer to the sea.

  • Tranquil beach and on the day we visited was green seal of Cetesb and clean, but difficult to park around. You have to get lucky to have vague.

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.
