  • Many food and beverage options, with homes in the sand. Frequented by families, has a calm sea excellent for children. Crowded streets to Park, the parking charge R $25.00. That's where begins the trail of 7 beaches.

  • I went to this beach for about 3 years ago and returned this month. I loved to visit, like the first time. Mainly by the natural pool that sits on the right side of the beach. Is sensational. Had several fish swimming close to us, we also saw a crab and even a streak (which was away). On the trail we did, in the end, the top of the rocks, we did see dolphins. For me, it's "nature" beach of ubatuba. Is on my personal list of best beaches.

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.
