  • Beach calm, almost without waves. With a natural aquarium in the corner where you can swim with the fish. Small stretch of sand. With kiosks and carts for food. Recommend for families with children and for people who don't like rough seas.

  • In low season should be a delight. We were at the Carnival (the trail out of the Pond) and we regret not having been in Cedar or Bonetinho. Despite being a beach with several kiosks and restaurants, the water was even a bit blurred, of so many people.

  • Beach right away, good for rest and quiet. Quiet and crystalline water waves well.

Where to stay in Ubatuba

Ubatuba's accommodations mainly stick close to the water, where major hotels along coastal roads offer both simple and luxurious rooms, with or without a view. Budget-conscious travelers may wish to explore the more humble pousadas (guesthouses) of the town, with a good choice throughout, coming down in price as you move away from the water. Consider an apartment rental for longer stays; or, if you're anxious to get out into the national park and mountainous areas of the municipality, try the campsites on the outskirts of town.
