From ilha Porchat, you have a fabulous view on the beach of Santos and Sao Vicente. In addition, you can enjoy a good lunch or diner. Must see when you are near.

The views of Sao Vicente, Santos and Praia Grande are stunning from this island. Wasn't over impressed with the Niemeyer Monument but the views from there are quite nice.

Very nice place to visit in Sao Vicente. Picturesque views. Its a little bit of trek on foot so maybe a car or cab will save you a hike uphill. Make sure to bring your panoramic camera ;)

You get a great view from up the Porchat Island but I advise you to go with a car. The walk is kinda long unless you wanna exercise a little. From up there you can see the Itararé Beach and the São Vicente Bay.
