Saco da Velha Cave, Paraty

4.1
#6 of 10 in Nature in Paraty
A small but stately cave adjacent to a beautiful beach, and reachable only by boat, Saco da Velha Cave offers visitors something a bit different to the norm. Kick off your sandals and paddle into the cave’s grotto-like interior, where you can explore beneath the rocks or snorkel among the local marine life. When you’re done spelunking, lie back and take in the scenery on the nearby Saco da Velha beach.

  • Worth knowing, 5 minutes walking by rocks the Grotto only has one access and you get water in the waist.

  • Not found very interesting the Grotto itself, but the beach that is good ... only very small compared with the other.. And has a bit of trash, the times was the day I went.

  • Super quiet beach of crystal-clear waters, with access by boat, so super unique. A delight for bathing in the sea and see the fishes with snorkel. Has the cave that is a grace, a work of nature. Has a breaking bar familiar with DIVINE food! I recommend trying the fried Mackerel (delicious). I hope I can come back.

Where to stay in Paraty

If you want close proximity to raucous summer nightlife and some of the best things to see in Paraty, look no further than the historical center. There you can choose from any number of guesthouses, inns, and boutique hotels, which integrate seamlessly into the town's colonial architecture. If beach access is your primary concern, cross the canal and head a few minutes north, until you arrive at the coastal neighborhood of Jabaquara, where you'll find a range of cozy options. Farther from the center, the hillside neighborhood of Pantanal offers something a bit quieter among the trees.
