Wonderful afternoon on the Tombo beach. It' the best place in Guaruja to spend time resting or surfing. The size of the beach is less than 1km and had two hills one from either side. Sitting on the beach you will see an island, known "Lighthouse Gizzard". Sellers will offer everything you need, If you want you can try to... More

It's a wonderful beach with the blue flag, great for surfing , SUPing, or just To relax. It's a beautiful choice when you are in São Paulo, needing a mindfull time , not so far !

The waters are very clean and enjoyable for a family experience, and are recomendable for everyone. Although surfers can also take advantage of smaller size waves you can also benefit because the ideal conditions are perfect for learning.

Nice clean beach. The name is due to the fact that you never know what is underneath your feet when you go into the water. You may give a few steps and simply fall into a deep hole. Bars all over the place and good restaurants.

I basically grew up going to Tombo beach in teh 80's. The place has changed at lot since then. It went on a period of transition from the 90's to late 2000's. It even won a award for one of the most cleanest beaches, in Brazil. I still think it's a well kept secret, it attract less crowds then Pitangueiras... More

I go jogging there regularly from my place in Guaruja and every so often take the family for lunch at one of the kiosks on the beach. Very pleasant and less busy than the neighbouring beaches.

Is clean, its has a certificate and people try to rid their garbage when leaving. Large amount of bars and restaurants along the... More
