Porchat island, Sao Vicente

4.1
Oscar Niemeyer favored this getaway with a white lookout that gives visitors a breathtaking view over the beach and city below. However, Porchat island is not just about views and scenery; it has a city that attracts both domestic and international visitors for its energetic nightlife. Kill the day enjoying the water and sand, or stroll the street visiting local boutiques then join the party at night when the city lights up.

Hiking to the lookout takes time, but it's a great way to exercise and enjoy the island's natural assets. When you reach the lookout, you'll be greeted with an extraordinary view of the land below. Try the restuarant at the top and enjoy a hearty meal with a city view.  Make Porchat island part of your personalized Sao Vicente itinerary using our Sao Vicente trip itinerary builder .

  • Where was built a gazebo designed by Brazilian master Oscar Niemeier, that alias deserves a little more attention. Offers various activities such as restaurants, live music, etc. Besides the view is spectacular.

  • Beautiful place, full of options, activities outside the view from up there ... It's so beautiful that even seems to make part of the sad and abandoned St. Vincent, people visit thinking Saints ... worth the ride and take the family to take nice photos or lunch.

  • The Observatory (Niemeyer) is the most important point with a pretty nice view to the bahias de São Vicente and Santos. The restaurants also offer broader landscapes, great to enjoy a good meal with charming scenery. I'm quite followed the scene both day and night and never had nor seen anything related to a dangerous place.

Where to stay in Sao Vicente

The main urban area of Sao Vincente is primarily residential, with only a few accommodations dotted throughout. Pousadas (guesthouses) and hostels offer budget rooms in the main residential areas, although many sit quite far from the city's main attractions. Many holidaymakers instead choose to stay is in the neighborhood of Gonzaguinha during their Sao Vicente vacation. The beachside area is a home to a good collection of accommodations, including the city's main hotels, which line the waterfront and boulevards. A handful of pousadas and hostels sit on the side streets.
