Beach
“It is a secluded spot, an environmental protection area, a State Park on the way to São Paulo. Perfect to go with the familiy, beautiful , long extension beach with two rivers flowwing to the ocean in each side of the beach. There are no kiosks, so take you food and drinks with you. Take a sun umbrella with you, no shades there. One of my favorite spots to go with the kids.”
