Boicucanga Beach, Sao Sebastiao

#5 of 53 in Things to do in Sao Sebastiao
Beach Nature / Park
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.
