General Information

A curious sign at the entrance to the city reading,”here it’s tasty” receives the visitors in this picturesque beach town, located in the North of the State. São Miguel do Gostoso became famous at the end of the 90’s and today is one of the principle destinations of the lovers of windsurfing and kitesurfing that visit the State. Gostoso is exactly on the “corner of the continent”, where they say “the wind takes a curve” and for this reason the beaches, with very few waves and strong winds practically all year round, make this a paradise for the lovers of nautical sports.

The lovely ensemble of cliffs, known as Tourinhos, also enchants visitors. São Miguel besides all this has a rich tradition in popular culture: bumba-meu-boi, pastoril and the handicrafts stand out in the city. The culinary is another attraction: besides seafood, in Gostoso you can eat the famous Octopus Risotto, that justifies the city’s name and is one of the most asked for dishes in the Region.
