Sao Sebastiao

In the 1990s, the area's rustic appeal, pleasant tropical climate, and wealth of unspoiled beaches made Sao Sebastiao holidays hugely popular with wealthy Brazilians seeking calmer, less congested coastal spots. Today, Sao Sebastiao tourism thrives largely thanks to foreign surfers and young weekend revelers from Sao Paolo, drawn by the region's choppy waters and soft sands. Numerous bars and restaurants add to Sao Sebastiao's indisputable coastal charm, providing plenty of opportunities to relax over a hearty meal or party the night away. The city also serves as an ideal base for exploring the nearby islands, each featuring its own distinct character, wildlife, and priceless views. Our Brazil vacation planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
