This is a calm and flat beach, the sea is calm; a very good place to take your kids. Unfortunately, there is only one hotel on this beach, but you can stay in Barra do Sahy and visit this on foot or by car.

The city of São Sebastião has a few great beaches, and this is one of the best of them. Surrounded by private residencial and summer vilas, the ocean access is easy (although you don't find many parking spaces outside the vilas). Many vendors work on...More

Water is beautiful, the sightseeing is beautiful, but you´ll feel so alone... there are only big silent houses around, no one in the street (just one street), and no places to buy things. So, if you don´t mind going to a place with no one,...More
