Boicucanga Beach, Sao Sebastiao

(3.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Boicucanga Beach to your Sao Sebastiao travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Sao Sebastiao holiday planner.

  • I liked the beach, but much of the beach is not very interesting for those who go to child, as most of the beach and tumble and the waves pull too, it is advisable to stay right there at the beginning which is a lot less. But overall it's a very nice beach.

  • Boiçucanga still has the best infrastructure in the region and the sunset is beautiful too! The beach have been very dirty, especially in the middle of it, near the bars.

  • This beach is between the best beaches in the world the sunset is something divine. sitting in the sand or in a lounge chair on the beach at the end of the day and listen to the sound of the waves is relaxing. Very good for walking and exercise. Take repellent earlier in the day and at the end of the day the black flies attack.. but no big deal. My little loved.. We recommend ...
