This is like a smaller and more cosy version of Maresias beach. Clear sand with good surf in most places. The left side across the river Camburizinho is calmer and better for small children. Some foodstalls are there but not too crowded. Can get quite hot in summer as there is not much shade.

Amazing place for who wants to surf. The beach has a soft sand and very good waves during quite whole year. The best location is in the middle in my opinion, close the deck. For your accompanying there are some places to buy food, restaurants and until a small shopping there.

Nice beach sometimes difficult waters to swim. For kids you need an extra pair of eyes and hands. Nice little surf shops and restaurantes in the area. Great 2 restaurants near by Acqua & Manaca.

It is great for families with children because the waves are small and the sand is great to play with them, but you will find options for everyone here. Cristal clear watter for snorkeling (not sure for scuba diving), Surfing, swimming, running, and many other options. Several quiosks at the beach sell food and beverages. Later in the day (around...

The water is not cold at all. You can rest as it is a quiet beach, with several food services that walk through you. The mountains nearby and the island right in front of view, give you the idea of paradise. Great beach to rest and forget the world.

I love the fact that there are no vendors. Just big extensions of sand. It is beautiful because it has mountains around the beach and the sunrise and sunset are georgeous. If you like photography this is a nice place to take great photos.

If you go to Sao Paulo for vacation, please go to Camburi Beach before you go home. It takes 3 hrs with car and 4-5 hrs with bus. Buy a batida or a cold beer from Wagner who runs a mobile beach bar on the south end of the beach. Enjoy the people, sun, and sand, but beware of the... More
