Sono Beach, Paraty

4.7
#2 of 84 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.

    The beach is highly recommended for those who never was, but she's not as spectacular as they talk. There are only two ways to get to the beach. The first half is walking on a trail. For people who are not used to walk, can even be considered a difficult trail. Do not recommend this way to those who go camping and will carry a lot of baggage, by the difficulty of the trail. She is very steep and very muddy. Not recommend for people that have difficulty locomotive. The other way to get to the beach is '' boat ''. The person is well '' salty ''.

    Who is the Paraty, can't let go of the sleep beach. Beautiful place, you can go through a track, more or less 1:30 walk, or you can go by boat as well. If you go by car, go to the condo of orange trees and Park somewhere, I paid r $20.00. You can go by bus, take bus only tbm the bus going to the village of oratory and get off at end. If you prefer instead of the trail go by boat to the beach, at the end point you take an estate of grace that leads to the place to go. Regardless of how you are what matters is the destination. Beautiful beach, clear waters, quiet. Well worth going.

    The trail to get to the beach doo Sleep is a bit heavy (3.6 km), you have the option to go by boat from Orange condo, but well worth the walk! The beach is beautiful, very wooded, and really, when we get there gives a desire to stretch in the shade of a tree and pull a NAP rsrss!!! Some stalls with moderate prices and good service.

    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.

    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.
