Series on the State of SÃO PAULO - The State where I WAS BORN and where I've always LIVED - The SOUTHEASTERN REGION OF BRAZIL - #116!




MARTIM DE SÁ (I) - UMA PRAIA DO LITORAL NORTE DO ESTADO DE SÃO PAULO - CIDADE DE CARAGUATATUBA!

MARTIM DE SÁ (I) - A BEACH IN THE NORTHERN COAST OF THE STATE OF SÃO PAULO - CARAGUATATUBA CITY!

Last week-end, I took my car and went down to the coast with a friend. Nothing really planned, but the intention to get relaxed by the sea!
We stayed in the city of CARAGUATATUBA (some 250km from CAMPINAS, towards the northeast), the main one in the northern coast of the State of São Paulo. From there one can drive around, visit and enjoy hundreds of beaches (crowded, semi-desert or desert ones)!

This time, I stayed in MARTIM DE SÁ BEACH (a pretty urban one, close to downtown), in CARAGUATATUBA, and this picture was taken right there, while I was walking along the beach! It was pretty empty because it was a week-end before a holiday (Corpus Christ), so that's the usual look of the place without the crowds that go there from São Paulo City, Campinas and São José dos Campos, for example!

Life guards haven't a tough job those days!

In the background, to the left, the most distant mountains are part of ILHA BELA/BEAUTIFUL ISLAND, the largest island in SÃO PAULO's coast and one of the largest in BRAZIL's shoreline!


São Paulo is the wealthiest state in Brazil, but its coast does not reflect that! SANTOS, SÃO VICENTE and GUARUJÁ are the largest cities, very close to SÃO PAULO CITY (around 100km to the east) with urban beaches and a large harbor. To the south, some urban areas and quite ugly beaches. In the southernmost tip of the coast, one of the poorest regions in the state, but with nature very well preserved! To the north, lots of smaller cities, a big island (ILHA BELA), and nature reasonably preserved. Not the wealthiest region in the state either and sometimes that's better, at least for nature!
