Gonzaga Beach, Santos

4.2
#1 of 7 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.

  • Hard sand and Clay-colored. The water is turbid. Promenade shaded but boring. On the beach a lot of carts with sellers water-beer-corn.

  • It is the beach located in the city centre, very beautiful coast spread over several kilometres. It's quiet and safe.

  • It's a nice place, busy, crowded, always has food and drinks stands. The beach at Saints is very similar, what changes are the carts and who attends.

  • 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.
