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.

Beautiful location, well worth a visit! Got there by boat from Laranjeiras Condominium. Amazing place! So well looked after and organized. You do have to wait for Combis to pick you up from the entrance of the Condominium. Praia do Sono is very peaceful, some bars around, good food, great for swimming.

Take the 1040 bus from the bus station to the end of the line (schedule in the pics). From there you will see signs for the trail, it's really easy to follow. Once you get there there are a bunch of restaurants and bars, most of them where closed when I went there is April but there were still a... More

A mild adventure to get there but entirely worth it. From the Paraty bus station you take the 1040T bus (leaves every hour or so) to the end to a town called Laranjeiras. The roughly 2.5km trail starts within a block of the bus stop and is incredibly well marked and easy to follow. Hike takes about 45 minutes at... More

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
