Boicucanga Beach, Sao Sebastiao

The picturesque, horseshoe-shaped Boicucanga Beach is backed by the steeply rising Serra do Mar, and has soft, white-gold sand, from where you can sit and watch experienced surfers riding the tumbling waves. At its northern end, Rio Boiçucanga empties into the ocean and you will find local fishermen with their boats, hauling up their daily catch. Boicucanga Beach is one of the few places in Brazil where you can watch the sun set into the water; the sky painted in brilliant shades of orange is an unforgettable sight, even more enjoyable with a delicious caipirinha in your hand.

  • I spent a few days in Boiçucanga and say that I loved the place! The beach is a delight, quiet, calm and warm water (on most days), clean, with good accessibility and good tents (trade). Has the most beautiful sunsets of the North Coast. The night has some good dining options and shopping just for fun. Loved it!

  • Boiçucanga beach is a beach complete. Has a nice sandy area, with spaces for those who like to play sports, has a sea a little more peaceful than their neighbors, but likewise clean water, has a good amount of restaurants on the beach and a good mall.

  • It is a beautiful beach, but found it a bit dirty. I didn't stay too long because the day we went it was cloudy and it was empty. I went by to Maresias.

  • Boiçucanga is the center of the North coast of Sao Sebastiao, is the best place to stay is very beautiful, has the region's largest waterfall, good infrastructure such as supermarkets and other commercial shops necessary. The night has live music on shoppingzinho and it is best not to have to go through the serra da maresias every time you buy something. For those who have a boat has more than a marina on site, there are also boat tour of the Islands _ very beautiful and relatively cheap

  • The region serves very well, with several choice of hostels, hotels and homes. Highly recommended but also the high and medium prices in the beach of the town itself is not very good, worth the nearby! But recommend in seasons and holidays and weekends.
