Guarujá

Perched on an island a mere 95 kilometers from the city of São Paulo, this bustling beach town seems a world away from the gargantuan urbanity of the state capital. Among its charms, Guarujá counts 23 separate, stunning beaches, all ripe for swimming, sunning and surfing. Families head to the beach at Enseada; singles, it's all about you at Pernambuco.

Juquehy

Located 156km from São Paulo, Juquehy is considered one of the most beautiful beaches along the north coast of the State. Surrounded by the Atlantic Forest, the coastline features three kilometers of fine sand and transparent waters, great for surfing, swimming, walking or just relaxing. An ideal place for family holidays as well as for couples and small groups, Juquehy has a reputation for its excellent local gastronomy, diversity of marine life and range of tourist activities.

São Sebastião

One of the only towns on the Paulista coast that has preserved a portion of its colonial charms, São Sebastião sits on a dramatic channel dividing the mainland from Ilha de São Sebastião (popularly known as 'Ilhabela'), a 15-minute ferry trip away. Prices in town are moderate by local standards, but for good reason. There are no beaches at hand, and the town is also a major oil depot, with huge tankers somewhat diminishing the natural beauty.

Ubatuba

Situated on the breathtaking Litoral Norte (north shore) of São Paulo state and straddling the Tropic of Capricorn, the town of Ubatuba is a beachcombers' and surfers' paradise. In fact, the city of 78,000 (225 kilometers northeast of the state capital) is known as the Surf Capital of São Paulo, as well as being a major sailing center. Visitors and locals have more than 100 beaches to choose from, so you've got no reason to go home without tan lines.

Picinguaba

Picinguaba is an ancient fishing village, considered patrimony of humanity by UNESCO, thus the houses, canoes and artefacts preserved with its original features. Picinguaba is located in Ubatuba, 34.8 km from Paraty.

Paraty

Paraty (also spelled Parati) will take you back in time. A colonial city that sits on a perfect bay, Paraty was the second most important port during the Golden Century when gold was a major export of Brazil. Today you can walk the cobblestone streets and feel the pull of centuries past. Cars are not allowed in the downtown area, so it maintains its original charm. If you are tired of lounging on the sand, you can rent a boat and explore the islands in the bay, swim in the crystal blue water, and even visit an island restaurant for a perfect caipirinha. Paraty is known for excellent restaurants and boutique shops, hand-made crafts, art and exclusive jewelry designers.
