Sono Beach, Paraty
(4.7/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • Incredible Beach to do with time, as it takes about 50 min of walk through the mata atlantica, beautiful where see, can camp you got boats to return in case of not performing back threshing, is entered from the closed condominium of Laranjeiras in Trindade, and they let you to this beach.

  • Beautiful beach, with access by boat or trail, worth checking out, and if possible to spend a night there camping, for those who like the idea, of course ... lol!!!

  • Extremely strong waves. Picturesque river that desaguá in the sea on the left side. Beautiful view of the beach trail that goes to the beach. But I confess that I found it very dirty when I'd landed there. A lack of education of tourists and locals who don't care for conservation.
