Gonzaga Beach, Santos

4.1
#1 of 7 in Outdoors in Santos
Beach · Nature / Park
Easy access to the city makes Gonzaga Beach a popular stop for locals looking to relax for a couple of hours. Rent a beach chair and an umbrella--make sure the price you're quoted for the pair is a flat rate and not by the hour--then grab a spot near the water where you can dip your feet in its refreshing foam. You'll be approached by snack sellers peddling ice cream, churros, and chips, but drinks are purchased at the stands that sporadically line the beach. Visit in the morning to avoid crowds, but come back at night to see the beach romantically lit by strings of bulbs. Work out when and for how long to visit Gonzaga Beach and other Santos attractions using our handy Santos trip itinerary builder tool.
