Sao Goncalo Beach, Paraty

4.0
#8 of 42 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. Plan my trip to Paraty with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Beautiful beach, hot water, fluffy sand, away from the busy centre. Coming up the beach by the side where the parking and traders riozinho sell cold beer at a fair price. The beach is great, I went after the new year's Eve is quiet and without massive crowd was. The neighborhood of São Gonçalo has hostels, I nominate the Paraty green close is wonderful and cozy, you can stay closer to the beaches and away from the Center. Take your bag and bring your trash!

  • We arrived at the beach of São Gonçalo by indication of a friend, we found the place by the number of cars parked on the side of the road. First reminder, take your bag of trash. We got there, parking costs an average of $10.00 to 53 ha.and 25 ha beside with the locals (famous keepers of SP), with the difference that they really care for their cars with time, also we were very well received by them and gave us great tips too. The beach has a beautiful view, the sea crystal clear water pump, a few waves, there is a little forest where taking just 1 yoke you enjoy right of sombra e água fresca. There are bars that you can stay peaceful being served at the table, or even take a grid because they make bricks ready to ride that makeshift barbecue. Is Important: when you go, the first thing to do according to the locals, is stop just where has a lot of people, I never frequent the beach alone or stay in isolated places.
