Barra do Sahy, Sao Sebastiao

(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful beach, quiet, clear waters, warm and calm sea. There are boat rides that take you by 50 pence (roundtrip) to one of the Islands where there is kiosk. Find Douglas boatman, a "rasta" very kind and considerate. There is also another option of lodging or camping on ilha das couves. Who receives is Maria. Get ready to get off of the universe because there have no electricity. Another tip is also a Marmitex sold in a restaurant at the roundabout of barra do Sahy for 15 reais. Home cooking is wonderful. Is next to the supermarket.

  • I stayed on this beach, the place is beautiful and everything very close, but lack all infrastructure of stalls and bars on the beach, the staff, especially on cloudy days or appears and drop tourists chasing for food and drink. Regrettable!
