Wonderful mid week when most people are at work or school. Take long walks, float in the bathtub warm water.

Decent beach, flat white sand, very little shade, so bring a parasol & get there early to get a decent spot as gets very busy in the summer. Plenty of good & drink vendors plus local bars along the roadside so no need to bring a picnic.

It is a long beach in Guaruja with several bars by where you can by drinks, food and even rent chairs and umbrelones. Waves are pretty flat but you have to be careful due "holes" in the bottom under water.

Used to spend my holidays on this beach and it was always The beach. It was a huge disappointment to see it now so dirty and ugly. It is missing maintenance. It is missing safety. It is missing life.

Enseada is a more then 5 km long beach, soft to walk on. There are lots of standing barracks along the way selling all sorts of food and drinks. Nice to stroll on the sand or, if someone prefers, there is a bicycle route and a walking boardwalk.

Nice beach, very long, good for sea bath but to crowd during summer, holidays, and with risk of rubbering. Dificult to park, and risk os car dammage.
