Barra do Sahy, Sao Sebastiao

(260+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • With your sweetie and white sand, the barra do sahy is ideal for those looking for a romantic weekend or a weekend with his family. SUP tours and kayaking are very welcome at the beach, since you have the possibility to go paddling (or boat) to the Islands, the ride lasts on average 40 min to go 40 minutes to return +, paddling.

  • Clean water and calm beach. Great to be bathing after the surf small waves. Very good for those who have children.

  • This beach is beautiful, crystal clear waters, with all support of huts and hostels, and secure, suitable for families, seems a natural pool without waves. I've been to all beaches from North to South of Brazil, and this is best beach I've ever met, only thing missing is restaurant for the night, then you need to go to Boiçucanga (cheaper) or Juquehy (More expensive), as the other loses 5 minutes drive.
