Beach Nature / Park
Barra do Sahy, on Sao Paulo's North Shore, is encircled by lush rainforest, with bromeliads cascading down the trees. You can have complete privacy here thanks to jundu, low vegetation formed by grasses and shrubs. A peaceful river flows into the Atlantic Ocean at the corner of this crescent-shaped beach. You can follow it upstream and come across an expanse of mangroves. Two more pristine beaches are located close to this spot, and you can reach them by boat or kayak. Snorkel or hike up to the nearby waterfall, then grab lunch, or a bowl of ice cream, right on the sand. Put Barra do Sahy into our Sao Sebastiao vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
