Beautiful beach with trees behind for shade - a few little shacks selling seafood etc. better still get the boatman to take you round the next headlands to antigos and antiguinhos beaches - deserted, nothing there but a few hardcore surfer boys. Take your own water - there's plenty of tree shade at the back of the beach. Antiguinhos is... More

To get to this beach you have to either come by boat or you can do what we did. Get the bus from Paraty and then walk nearly one hour to the beach through woods. It is a great walk and a great start to the day. The beach is lovely and quite quiet. After a few hours on the... More

If you like to walk and aren't in a hurry get directions here as well as to the Pool you can hike up to from the little village.

All the pousadas and 'guides' go on about this place as a 'tour with a rainforest walk', etc. But the reality is that this is just a very average scruffy beach with many concrete bars (often closed/empty) strewn with debris (naturally, rotten organic material from the trees), and rubbish from the trekkers. There are many many better beaches to explore... More

Beautiful, very local and pretty deserted beach. You have two ways to get there. We drove to this very expensive looking villa complex and asked at the security gates for a boat to take us to Sono beach. It cost 40 reals each for a return journey. We then had to park our car and then get in a van,... More

Just a bus and 1hr walk but so worth it as you'll have a paradise beach only shared with a few campers and surfers. A definately recommendation as a day trip fro, paraty

This beach can be reached by boat or by 1hr hike, the hike is more rewarding as you got to see the full beach view from the top. Going down to the beach, you would feel you own the beach to yourself (only few people on the beach), the clear blue water, the rocks and the green of the mountain... More

I was there for new year's eve and camping!!! the best point of this beach is that you can only access it by boat (25R$/px) or by a 1h hike after a 1h bus trip to Laranjeras. Very lovey place to go, with waterfalls as well...I RECOMEND this place

Getting here is a bit difficult, but definitely worthwhile. You must drive to Laranjeiras Condominium (coming from Paraty driving towards Santos, turn left at trindade, drive up a hill, at the top the road to the right takes you down to Trindaded, whereas the road on the left takes you to Laranjeiras). Once in Laranjeiras park and either take a... More
