Praia Grande Beach, Ubatuba

#13 of 71 in Outdoors in Ubatuba
You will instantly feel the lively atmosphere when you arrive at Praia Grande Beach. The wide, sandy beach, lined with palm trees, attracts an eclectic crowd with its large number of kiosks. Local specialty food, hand-crafted souvenirs, clothes--you name it, there will be a vendor selling it. Beachside bars provide you with cold beers and refreshing cocktails, as well as music, often live, which add to the high spirits of the beach. To avoid the surfers, who are attracted by the great waves, you should aim for the right side of the beach. That is unless you want to join them, in which case you can easily find both equipment to rent and an instructor somewhere along the beach.

    Out of dates strong as holidays or high season, this beach is perfect. The sea is lovely and clean, great for bath. Very kiosk service on the beach, easy access and all overall very clean. Now when very full already gets a little more complicated. It gets really crowded and for those with family or want a little peace and quiet may not be so good.

    Passing by Praia Grande on the highway already demand time. The beach is always very populated and there are many people across the Avenue. Rough seas, numerous kiosks with loud, cars vying for a parking space and thousands of bathers. Definitely not my scene. To reach this scenario can access the Great Beach that is much closer to Santos. But it's a matter of taste; Remember that my opinion is subjective.

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.
