Sono Beach, Paraty

4.7
#2 of 41 in Beaches in Paraty
Beach Nature / Park
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.

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.

  • 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
  • The walk to the beach is required! The walk is about 50 minutes by well-marked track, without risk of losing even with stairs and handrail in the most critical points. Worth going to tennis!

  • Worth going in low season on new year's Eve, when the beach (and the community) is very overloaded. The place is beautiful with many trails, beaches and cachus, on the outskirts.

  • Very nice beach. But if you need to take a boat to cross prepares the Pocket to 50.00 per person round trip, but 20.00 for parking. Maybe next time I try to walk for 1 hour and enjoy more
