The beach services are little poor, but you can eat and drink by the food carts around the beach. Santos got only one big Beach divided by 7 rain drain channels. You can borrow beach chair and umbrella sun for free in the food barracks.

This beach is also great for doing morning runs/workouts and I did a couple of training sessions in the morning. Plenty of space and the sea was beautiful to swim in. Fantastic beach with very fine sand!
