I was in Santos at the end of 2021 and the city was great, very safe, with a lot to do there and a beautiful infrastructure.
Santos is also close to Guarujá and São Vicente, in 5the State of São Paulo, so if you stay a few more days in the city, it’s worth getting to know the municipalities around it.
What to do when you go to Santos
Walk along the Shore
Certainly, the most traditional walk for those who go to the beach could not be left out, the shore of Santos is well structured, and walking there during the sunset is amazing.
During holidays and summer,the beaches are very crowded, especially in the afternoon.
You can also practice physical exercises there.
Municipal Park Roberto Mario Santini
This park was built as a platform for treated sewage on the high seas.
It extends 400 meters on the sea and has a wonderful area, full of gardens, bike paths, playground, etc.
It’s a great place to visit and spend the day.
Santos Shore Garden (Jardins da Orla de Santos
It has more than 5 kilometers in length and is considered the largest beach garden in the world.
This is a tour that cannot be missed when you go on a day trip in Santos.
Go to Santos Beach
Santos actually only has a single beach, but it turns out that the city is divided in 7 parts. These parts divide the districts and, consequently, each stretch of beach between the parts named after the neighborhood to which it belongs.
The beach is very beautiful and its water is not so cold.
There you can play volleyball in the sand, swim, eat at the street kiosks, the options are huge and please all audiences.
Coffee Museum – Museu do Café
It is located at the building of the former Bolsa Oficial do Café, where you can learn about the history of this drink in Brazil and in the world, through exhibitions, educational activities and cultural programs.
Located at Rua XV de Novembro, 95 – Centro Histórico
The ticket costs 10 reais (less than $3 dollars) and you can get more information here.
