Santos and South Coast

Santos and South Coast is a region in the state of São Paulo. It corresponds to a coastal area with hundreds of kilometers of continuous beaches, surrounded by the Atlantic Forest South-East Reserves, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


  • The Baixada Santista is a metropolitan area with 1.6 million inhabitants, with Santos as the core municipality. With exception of Bertioga, the composing cities of the metro area are practically conurbated, forming a big coastal city. Particularly due to the proximity to São Paulo, the beaches of Baixada Santista tend to get overcrowded on public holidays, generating lots of traffic. Many of them also suffer from pollution problems. However, one can still find some tranquility there, especially outside the high season.
  • The South Coast is by far the most unspoiled coastal area of the state, containing extensive and quiet beaches, and almost completely preserved nature. It contains also the historical towns of Iguape and Cananéia.
