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.

  • The crystal-clear water, the beach is very beautiful and well cared for, I felt quite safe there. Has a few waves, ideal for taking the kids.

  • I made a visit to Barra do Sahy in January after the new year. By being prquena and sunny day, the beach was pretty full. Is known to have calm water, so, despite being a relatively tombo Beach, there are many families with children. There is 1 tent that aligam kayaks and surfboards. Aligamos 2 2:30 R$ 120 kayak by the House to visit the Islands that lie ahead. I highly recommend this ride takes approximately 40 minutes round trip 40 back. You can do this also with tour boats for a value of $40 per person or stand up. On the Islands it's good to take some food or snack as there are only about 2 stalls selling water and etc.

  • Sea clean and quiet most days we were there. Just filled Beach holiday, even during the holidays. There are a few beach huts, with bar service, who rent Chair/umbrella. kayak rentals also. Very good to go with children.
