Guarajuba is on one of the most stunning scenery along the Coconut Coast. The coconut trees, verdant and bountiful, ally the white sands of the beach and the blue of sea forming a scene of unique beauty. Guarajuba's shoreline is very well organized. The near-beach little restaurants and bars are well standardized and capable of well serving the local residents and visitors from all over the world.
Guarajuba has a very well lighted boardwalk, with a modern landscape and easily accessible facilities, including supermarkets (some have delivery service), mall, bank, ATMs, pharmacy, medical clinic, bakery, cafes, etc... Especially during the high season, the little city mall with several bars, restaurants and shops provides a whole new nightlife experience for Guarajuba.
