Beaches, aquarium and historic center 

The city’s main postcards are its 7 km of beaches, framed by the world’s largest seaside garden. Walking by the sea and biking on the bicycle path are a must for travelers of all ages.

The historic center has been revitalized and features some attractions such as the Coffee Stock Market building (1922). In Praça Mauá square it is possible to take a tram that covers the main streets of the historic center, in a 5 km ride. 

The City Aquarium has some 30 ponds with over 150 species of fresh water and salt water, making it the most visited attraction of the city. Divers can enjoy the Laje de Santos Maritime State Park.
