The beach services are little poor, but you can eat and drink by the food carts around the beach. Santos got only one big Beach divided by 7 rain drain channels. You can borrow beach chair and umbrella sun for free in the food barracks.

Like other Brasilian beaches the Santos beaches are wide flat sand, with vendors renting umbrellas and chairs. On the day we were there the sea was calm and not much happening.

This is an upscale beach area that offers wide sidewalks for strolling, multi-use paths, and plenty of cafes, restaurants, and shops.

This beach is also great for doing morning runs/workouts and I did a couple of training sessions in the morning. Plenty of space and the sea was beautiful to swim in. Fantastic beach with very fine sand!

If you need chairs and good service, just get them for free at Gonzaga´s Drinks (if you buy drinks from them).

The beach is beautifull. Very nice for an evening watch. It is also nice if you like running, biking or any other sporting activities.
