Guarujá is only 89 Km (55.3 mi.) away from the capital of the state of São Paulo. With both busy and almost desert beaches, the city has something to offer both for those looking for fun and for those who want to rest. But the coast is not Guarujá's only attraction. The island also has one of the oldest golf courses in Brazil.

It is possible to practice other sports, such as tennis and surfing in the Island. Every year the island hosts competitions of both sports. Besides, there is a bike lane stretching over the whole border of the Bay, thus perfect for a bicycle ride. Guarujá offers practically all services found in big cities: shopping mall, supermarkets, hotels, and restaurants. Its nightlife is very intense, with many bars and nightclubs.
