Guaruja is greatly recommended for the whole family and especially for the surfer, as the beach of the fall season is well known for perfect waves.  Clean, very well attended with great restaurants! The Guaruja beaches are great for those in surfing.

1.Visit Aqua Mundo

The aquarium is really small but has very interesting species like the arapaima, bat fish, stone fish, penguins and others. Structure very good, various animals, children are amazed. Considering the environment, size and animals, the value of the visit was for a combo of 2 adults and a child. No doubt help in the days without a beach and for those who want another option beyond that. It has a souvenir shop and a kind of restaurant.

3.Go to Fortaleza da Barra Grande

Good ride, 10 minutes by boat, the rate of R $ 2.30 per person, worth the history of the place. A place with many stories. Who knows a nominal fee to be reversed to that location.

The museum is located in the Morro do Maluf, in Guaruja and in Mirante da Campina, where the staff usually jump paraglider. The guides are very attentive and explain very well.


5.Visit the Jardim Virginia Guaruja

If you like, go at the end of a year to see the fireworks, and take the opportunity to find some spot with family, friends, relatives and beat that relaxed chat along the edge of the place. If you love the breeze and walk makes you reflect on life, the area brings peace and serenity!


6. Get Surf Boards at Surf Total

The stand-ups stay in the Beach border. It has gigantic planks, old and full of water. For those who already know how to walk and catch some waves, you do not have the minimum condition. The property is a street behind the beach, take the avenue leading to the store and you will find it. If you love to surf, get some gears here in Guaruja.

Great location, excellent service from the moment of arrival to departure, great rooms, food and fun!
