Sono Beach, Paraty

(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Flanked by a lush wall of rainforest and with golden sands that stretch as far as your eye can see, Sono Beach is a deserted paradise well removed from the bustle of Rio. You can reach it by boat or take a 50-minute trek from Vila do Oratório, encountering monkeys and toucans along the way. Emerging from the forest on to the beach, you will be blown away by its sublime beauty. The beach remains unspoiled with very little infrastructure, despite a small fishing community who have made it their home, but you will find a few kiosks whose owners will tell you stories of the island from times gone by. Casa da Empada, in particular, serves great sandwiches and cold beer, which you can enjoy under the shade of an almond tree while looking out over the translucent green-blue ocean. From the small church in the middle of the beach, you can take a 20-minute trail leading to natural pools and waterfalls, perfect for some scenic swimming. Put Sono Beach into our Paraty itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Paraty.

  • There is a condominium on the site, the access is only allowed after crossing a gatehouse with cancel and all that is bad, you even can go with your pet on your lap, we know the rule, but to prevent someone from entering a site on behalf of a small animal that either the ground will, even if the place is nice it ends with td Finally are humans, not the place is beautiful and not the beast that's hundreds of light years ahead

  • The place is unbelievable. Perfect beach, relax people, fishermen, waterfall, perfect everything. The problem is that to get there or you take a track (which gets tricky if you are with heavy luggage to stay longer) or through the martyrdom of Orange condo. The millionaires of the condominium achieved a deal with prosecutors that messed up the life of fishermen, who live at the time without fishing tourism. You may have to wait up to 4 hours for the van you get condo. It is forbidden to pass on foot and there is no other way to get to the boats. To make matters worse still has a guy who explores a poor little offering of services to carry the luggage of the crew.

  • The beach is a beach of fishermen next to paraty. Is wonderful and quiet is odd. It's great to do the trail from the village oratory there.
