The beach itself is good with small waves and lots of Brazillians sitting under umbrellas however there is a bit of rubbish on the beach. Howwever, a must see is the island near this beach that you walk out to in knee deep water. It is absolutely beautiful. You can look back onto the beaches of Santos with the buildings behind it and climb around the rocks. We even went jumping off the rocks with local Brazillians and everyday walked over to this island to see turtles that swam around the rocks in the same spot everyday. We spent hours just watching the turtles from the rocks and got in and swam with them. We brought goggles to watch them under the water however the water isnt clear enough to see them. the best option is to admire them from the rocks or jump and swim along side them to see them when they come up for a breath. Awesome place!

This beach is a very delightful place to be. The sand is very soft and clean. The water of the ocean is very refreshing and calm. The temperature in Santos is stable and often it`s very hot which is very good to swimming. We went there in the fall, so the place was very empty and the sea was quite cold. It is relatively calm, so take the kids, they will love it.
You can see a very incredible scenery of the harbor. There are seven canals that cross the city, and usually people who live there use it as a reference.
People go to the beach to walk, run, sunbathe, play with their dogs or friends and swim in the water. People also use it to practice sports like volleyball and beach tennis.
It is a place to enjoy with the friends and family.

I have never seen so much sealife on a beach at low tide. The beach is stretches for miles and is wide, with great beach sand. Lots of locals and sightseers where out sunbathing. It appears to be well-maintained. The water appears to be somewhat polluted.

A wonderful beach to take a walk and enjoy the ocean. There are many stands to get drinks. Lots of friends and family playing soccer and enjoying the beach. The sunset here was so nice. I highly recommend it.

Gonzaga beach at Santos has to be the WIDEST beach I have ever seen. A good 300m from kerb to ocean. Very flat, hard sand. Not exactly what I would look for in a beach but it is easy to sit on and it makes a great surface for the every busy Brazilians to play soccer, run races, play beach tennis and just parade along the beachfront.

There are plenty of little refreshment stations on the beach and most hotels have an arrangement with one of the stations to give you a few chairs and an umbrella for the day. Obviously the benfit they have is to sell you some ice cold beers or eye-wateringly strong Caipirinhas!

It is difficult to review the beaches of Santos separately as they merge together apart from the outlets that separate them. This is the most central and deepest of them. Served by local eateries that allow chairs for beach use. Santos is a busy port and if you like watching ships this is a good place to do it from.

Gonzaga is a very important neighborhood in Santos. Its beach is in the center of the whole extension, and a cozy place to go with family and friends. Thus, given the high number of commerce and restaurants at Gonzaga, it's very easy to go and grab a snack and come back to the beach!

My daughter and I enjoyed 2 days at this beautiful beach. We were privileged with the comfort of a sun umbrella, lounge chairs and the unique service brought to us with a variety of snacks, grilled cheese, sweet corn roasted, and local drinks such as caipirinha! We of course enjoyed the pleasure of swimming in warm and calm Ocean! Two unforgettable days at this beautiful beach in Santos!
