I just don't know where it got its name... Don't expect peace and quiet there! The sea is very wavy and the waves are very strong. Not recommended for people who can't swim!! The acai and natural juices are amazing. The access is through a 1 hour trail. It's okay, not very hard. To go back, you can take a... More

The longish walk through the jungle is part of the adventure in getting to this beach. The forest shades you from the sun, which for me was handy, also gives you a better insight into the country. Saw a couple of funny looking spiders and a giant worm! Beach spectacular and would have been fun to stay over. With the... More

Amazing beach, the trail is a little bit long and exhausting but it worth it to do it, you have bars and you can camp there

I've spent 10 days in this amazing beach. Nice and not so hard traking to get there. We rent a private room with hot water and frigobar. Fresh food from the sea. Waterfalls and isolade beach makes this place the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a simple life. Amazing vibe!!

What a lovely beach, with warm water and beautiful views of the hillside and tropical forest. The restaurants are simple, but great value. We ate calamari which was freshly caught and perfect. Our guide suggested asking the restaurants what fish is fresh. Many of the restaurants are also family run, so they take care in the food they provide. We... More

As mentioned by many people, there is a bus line from Paraty. However, many people mention this is the final stop but actually this bus drives to Trindade. The stop for Sono beach looks like a final stop though, it is a clear roundabout.

We drove and parked and trekked the 3.3km which was very hilly both up and down and took just under 1 hour. Beautiful and peaceful beach which appeared to be accessible only by trekking or boat. There was a nice little restaurant that reminded me of jost van dyke in the Caribbean. Go early and spend the day. We took... More

This is a beautiful long stretch of beach that can be accessed by an hour + walk, or a short boat ride (50 reals per boat) from the near by condominium . There is small laid back fisherman village and a cool river.

This is an isolated and wonderful beach reachable only by boat or by a hiking trail (of medium difficulty). It takes about one hour to cross the whole trail, starting from Laranjeiras village. The beach itself is very calm, with clear water and a dazzling scenario of green mountains and small islands. However, the infrastructure (food, drinks and facilities) is... More

This is a nice beach with a village. You can find restaurants and bars. However, if you prefer a deserted beach, I would recommend to walk to the next beach, Praia Antigos e Antiguinhos.
