Ready to sail around Paraty? Let's see which places are a must stop
- Praia de Antigos beach is one of the most famous in town for its peaceful and quiet atmosphere, its clear waters and white sand, not to mention the region's native vegetation, which hugs the beach for an even more stunning scene. For those seeking peace and relaxation, this is an essential stop.
- Separated from Praia de Antigos by a beautiful strip of vegetation is Praia do Sono, another beautiful beach in the region, with waters of an intense greenish blue, fluffy sand, embraced by the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. A peaceful and quiet beach that even offers natural pools and a mild sun due to the tall native vegetation around it. That one is also a must-see!
- Ponta Negra Beach is one of those places that you have to see to believe. The nature around it is so preserved (practically untouched) that its appearance is almost wild, as if straight out of a movie. Its clear green waters make it perfect for snorkeling, and when the sea is rough, surfing is the visitors' choice. Not only that, this beach also offers trails for the adventurous and natural pools for the lazy!
- For those travelling with children, Paraty Mirim Beach is a great option. It is an extensive and well-structured beach, cut by the river of the same name, meaning it still offers fresh water for the little ones. A beach of calm waters and lush beauty, it still houses ruins of old colonial mansions to further complement the picturesque look of the region, and the ride!
- Lula Beach, in turn, is undoubtedly one of the best places to visit on your boat trip in Paraty, not least because it is only accessible by boat. With its clear sand, calm and greenish waters, this beach is one of the most paradisiacal in the region, with a wild and untouched appearance because of its abundant green vegetation. Moor your boat at this super secluded beach and enjoy a mega private experience on your own boat!
- Trindade is one of the places in Paraty that deserves your due attention. Located within the Cairuçu Environmental Protection Area and the Serra da Bocaina National Park, you can already see that this little corner of the world is absolutely brimming with natural treasures, read Atlantic Forest, that are completely untouched. Its paradisiacal beaches, with blue waters and white sand, are also havens for surfers. For those wishing to catch a wave, simply moor your boat at Praia do Cepilho, Praia do Meio or Praia do Cachadaço, or explore the lesser-known beaches of the region and discover new treasures.
- For those looking for an even more unusual boat trip in Paraty, Saco do Mamanguá is the ideal option. It is an 8km long sea inlet with 33 beaches and 8 communities.
