I went with my family/relatives in Ubatuba for the weekend. Every different day we went to a different beach, the opinion that I have: if you don't like crowded places, don't go to Praia Grande beach

The name says it's all - it's a very big beach, it's wide and the water is shallow, so the waves keeps running for hundreds of feet. It makes it really safe and fun to play with the waves (but bad for swimming). The beach...More

I just passed by this beach without stopping by. The reason was that it was too crowded and there seemed not an inch of space available to get seated and relax on the beach. It's better to miss this beach and go over to some...More
