Enjoy the best scenario of the São Paulo Coast

If you just have one day in São Paulo, you can have an unforgettable experience, visiting a very well preserved city. Ubatuba is a city at the North Shore of São Paulo and this city has more than 80% of the territory with forests and beaches preserved. In this tour you will meet an island inside the Atlantic Rain Forest (Mata Atlantica) with a paradise beach where you can do a snorkeling or just swimming or relaxing at a very pleasant beach with beautiful landscapes. Only 3 1/2 hours from the City of São Paulo.


We will leave São Paulo City from a Hotel or the Airport around around 7:00 a. m. and we will take the road to Ubatuba, 230 kilometers away. We will pass through small cities and country landscapes. Arriving in Ubatuba, we will take the way to the North Beaches where we have the most preserved areas. We will arrive at the Picinguaba beach where we are going to take a boat and around 15 minutes later you will be inside Ilha das Couves. There you can rent an equipment to make snorkeling or just enjoy an amazing beach. Inside the island you have a small restaurant that you can eat or just drink juice, coconut water, etc. . . Going back to the Continent, at the Picinguaba Beach we have good restaurants with local food. After all we will take the road again, back to São Paulo.
