Blue skies and beaches
The water and the little islands near the shore are really great. Also, the life guards are very good at preventing water incidents. If you hear a whistle while you are in the water, and they are waving at you, it means you are going too deep into the sea, and you should come back. Having nothung to do, and not worrying with the clock. That was the best for me!
Guaruja - a region near the beach with big variety
Guaruja is mostly known (among young people) for its big parties, shopping places and good beaches to go surfing.
What many do not know is, that this region has many small secret beaches with great waves and also no waves, waterfalls, wonderful walking paths through the Mata Atlantica (rainforest) and another variety of things.

I would say the same as he said...just walk, from one beach to the other...to all the waterfalls...up the hills...and u will see lots of interesting stuff!

Great party with champagne and fireworks at the beach!
It's a brazilian tradition to jump 7 waves as the year turns...at 24hs. I think it's for success and luck...not sure :-)
and well...the other tradition..that is very visible at the picture, is that u should wear white: peace!!!
and u can have different colours: red (passion), pink (love), green (luck) and so on on ur body (that's why I have those weird colourful things hanging on my skirt:-))
