Beaches, plenty of fun and events

Known worldwide as the “Pearl of the Atlantic,” Guarujá attracts tourists all year round thanks to its large number of beaches (27 total), in addition to solid tourist infrastructure, bars, restaurants, hotels and nightclubs. 

Since it is rather close to São Paulo city, every weekend a large number of tourists flock to Guarujá, and many of them stay in their summer houses. The most famous beaches, such as Pitangueiras and Enseada, are usually crowded, while surfers enjoy good waves on Tombo beach. 

Travelers who want more peaceful surroundings can go to the Northern beaches, such as Branca, Preta, Pinheiro, Iporanga and São Pedro.
