Wonderful beach that you can only reach via a 2 hour hike in the forest or via boat ride. The hike was wonderful and the beach itself is awesome with small local restaurants that serve fresh grilled fish. Very nice!

Okay, we weren't expecting the hike but it was well worth it! We drove from Paraty to Praia do Sono, around 20-25 minutes. We parked our car at the trail head at a local person's house. The hike is 3 km, some uphill and winding....More

Great Walk to beach through lush bush (in shade yay). Easy to get to, take bus right to the end of the line and walk starts there. Waves weren't too big and water was beautiful temp. Hardly any people and a few places to grab...More
