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.

  • Beautiful site 1:00 trail and 20 or 30.00 per boat. Recommend taking money back boats because due to fatigue the back can be more painful for the track kkk

  • Well, to go to that beach first go to the village of Oratory, arriving there the residents charge for you to park the car (between $10 and $20), enter in the location and they will give you two options, a trail of 1 hr of walking between ascent and descent (the SINGULAR BEAUTY of this beach will be worth every drop of your sweat), or catch a kombi , inside the condominium Orange and from there take a boat to sleep (around 30 $ per person one-way). I chose to go by the trail (which is free) on the first climb, I almost gave up, but then it was getting better, the trail is beautiful and almost completely covered by vegetation of the Atlantic forest, there you have a view of the beach that who will not see boat. The beach is of fine white sand, BLUE water and CARIBBEAN with strong waves, the beach is quite extensive, with many shadows. There has some campgrounds and restaurants, the price is a little high because it comes from a place of difficult access, so it's important not to let any kind of garbage there, bring it back! BEACH PARADISE, perfect for those seeking peace and quiet. Following the beach has access to the beach of the ancient and antiguinhos, 2 km ahead,
