Sao Goncalo Beach, Paraty

4.0
#8 of 40 in Beaches in Paraty
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.

  • Want to riot is where you should go. Very ugly is rude. Many regulars with sound box, playing funk, pagoda. Barbecue everywhere. Has a few tables at the kiosk. I want to leave the detail that went in high season, Carnival. Has several points with parking, but recommend the give tip, because they get in the corner of the beach and get a little more comfortable

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.
