There are a few beaches in Guaruja but we mostly stayed on this one as it was closer to our apartment. Lovely soft sand towards the promenade, plenty of 'helpful' workers/locals selling anything you could wish for (same as most Brazilian beaches). The waves are...More

This beach is beautiful with thin white sand and green waters. The waves are ok for swimmers not much current. Excellent beach but a bit over crowded on the holidays and weekends.

Pitangueiras is the most central of all Guarujá's beaches, and is the heart of the action. Despite this, there are few hotels and restaurants in the beach area. It is also expensive to get to, as there are no buses. Guarujá's bus station is at...More

Overcrowded and overvaluated, after 2 pm the sun start to disappear behind the buildings. A lot of annoying vendors on the beach and people hearing loud local music under every beach umbrella. If you want a relaxing experience go to another place.

I really like Pitangueiras. It might not be one of the most beautiful beaches in São Paulo, but it's great. Lots of families and really secure with a lot of police officers. There are a lot of places to eat, specially on the beach. Depending...More

Busy in the high season but perfectly ok at any other time. Difficult to park - so keep the car on back streets but easy to walk from apartments and centre of town.

Great beach to spend your time with family and kids. A good place where you can buy drinks and some food is Casa de Pedra. They provide you umbrella and beach chairs.
