Sao Goncalo Beach, Paraty

(500+ reviews on the web)
Beach
You always get an attractive landscape when a river meets the sea, and this beach is no exception, with Rio Gonçalo emerging from the dense vegetation and cutting through the sand as it makes its way to the ocean. To access the beach, you have to walk, swim, or take a kayak across this channel, depending on the tide. Once on Sao Goncalo Beach, you will find white sand, clear waters, palm trees, native foliage, and few people. The length of the beach makes for a nice stroll, where you can admire its untouched beauty. From the beach, take a boat tour to one of the three islands protecting the coastline from the ocean beyond. The most popular, Ilha do Pelado Grande, has four pristine beaches, clear waters to snorkel in, a shallow mineral water source, and two bars to keep you entertained.

  • The beach is super nice, beautiful and defiant arrived, because it must cross a river, with water well fresquinha.rs But have the option to cross by canoe, 30 seconds. Beach with bars options, crystal clear water, good for the day. There also has the option to take a boat and go to the naked Island, a paradise that everyone should know.

  • Beautiful beach of calm waters, transparent and tibiae... abundance of fauna marina (fish and turtles). Highly recommended for families. You have to cross a small stream to reach it, but water does not waist, eastward this Sao Gonçalinho, which is beautiful also. During the week there are very few people, almost deserted. It has valet parking and there is some barracks where one can eat. By 20 reais per person crosses the island to do Strip, where there is a very good restaurant, excellent beach,
