Sono Beach, Paraty

4.7
#2 of 80 in Outdoors in Paraty
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 and other Paraty attractions into our Paraty online route planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The trail is already a charm. Is 1:00 walk that is very worthwhile. The arrival on the beach is the great reward. Look amazing and lots of tranquillity

  • Preserved beach. Linda!!! Access is by a 3.1 km trail or by boat. We prefer to go and back up the trail and no regrets for be well structured, with steps, we had mostly her shadow. We listened to the sound of birds and the contact with nature is guaranteed. It's very tiring. The heart and the breathing look good accelerated in several sections because of the steep climb. The beach is clean, with shallow waters. It's kind of hectic in some stretches. Restaurants and campsites with hot bathroom and kitchen. A drawback is that 4 g does not work there and the restaurant offers us access to Wi-Fi. The landscape is wonderful, yields a few good pictures. It is a beach of beautiful people. I recommend and plan to go back to camp.

  • The beach is the best of Trinity and Paraty, no doubt. To arrive by boat or by a trail of 3.1 km super easy to do. Almost at the end of the trail there is a gazebo with a view of the beach, just beautiful. Well worth doing the trail because the beach is more rewarding. The beach is beautiful, very quiet and pretty empty, but there are kiosks with good food and beverage options.

  • Beautiful beach, amazing views when swimming in the water. Took us about 50min to walk there, it's definitely worth the effort. Even on a Sunday it wasn't crowded.
  • The definition of paradise
  • Very difficult trail, 1:30. Go back and forth on the same day is exhausting. We return by boat.

  • Those looking for a natural beach with crystal clear water, find it here. For the visitor must however either take a one-hour Urwaldweg walk in purchase or to get here on this beach with a boat of Trindade. There are two campgrounds and some small bars offering drinks and also fresh fish. Then force those who can visit the another dream beach of Antiguinhos even at the end of the beach, which is a more an hour over the next Hill.

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.
