    Guarujá have lots of beaches to suit all tastes. There is Eden, Branca e Preta and Camburi, frequented by people that like to surfe and to see the natural beauty of the Mata Atlantica it is only accessible by trail or boat. There are urban landscapes, such as those formed by the edges of Pitangueiras, Enseada and Praia de Pernambuco that are full of bars and restaurants.
    In Guarujá you will find the largest aquarium in the South America. There are 35 giant tanks with eight thousand aquatic animals of 235 species of fish from freshwater and seawater, such as sharks, penguins, turtles, stingrays, reptiles and wolf marine. One of the highlights us the tank “Oceano”, with 800 thousand liters of seawater with lateral displays, where the visitors can interact with the divers.
    The natural beauty of Guarujá can be appreciated from several viewpoints. In the “Morro do Maluf” and on the “Mirante da Gávea”, you can see from there the beaches from “praia de Pitangueiras” and the beach of “Enseada. A nice tip is also to go to “mirante da Ponta das Galhetas that is between the beaches of “praia do Tombo”and the beach called “Astúrias, there you will view a island called “Ilha da Moela” and the “Morro do Sorocotuba” which belongs to the Atlantic florest. If you want to enjoy the sunset go the the “Costão das Tartarugas”.
    If you want to have a nice boat (schooner) ride you have two options. One that will lead you to the south beaches that will bring you to Santos, Saco do Major, Ponta do Rosa and Ilhas do Mato – it’s almost a 4 hour trip (round trip) or you can do the North beaches that has 3 hour trip and it goes until Praia de Iporanga.
    PERUIBE is a beach that is known as the Portal da Juréia, due to its location and access to the area that is open for visitors. The Ecological Station Juréia Itatins which is located between Peruibe and Iguape, is considered by UNESCO a World Natural Heritage and it has an area of 82.000 hectares of the Atlantic Forest vegetation, which also has almost 400 species of wildlife. Including endangered species such as tapirs, ocelots and jaguars. The turism is prohibited, except in some points: the waterfall “Cachoeira do Paraíso the beaches Desertinha, Carambore, Barra do Una and Juréia. To do Ecological research and environmental education projects is subject to authorization by the Environment Department tel nr. 55-13-3457-9243.
