Introducing Guarujá

With its fine beaches along the stretch of coast closest to São Paulo, once-glamorous Guarujá has suffered from overdevelopment. Still, if you can’t get further afield, it makes a good getaway from the ‘other’ big city – even if concrete towers line the beaches, which get packed with weekend day-trippers. A recent cleanup of waters and sands has renewed interest in a town that was the extreme of chic back in the ’70s. Surfers should note that there are good waves along Praia do Tombo.
