    When you are visiting Paraty, Sono beach is a must visit!

    How to get there?
    - Take the bus to Villa Oratoria from the Paraty Busstation. See the times in the photo’s I have included.
    - The bus takes about 45 minutes to get you to the end stop Villa Oratoria. This is where you get off the bus.
    - From there you follow the signs up the hill to the trail. At the beginning of the trail you’ll see a sign saying ‘Reserva Ecológica Estadual da Juatinga’.
    - The trail is 3,2km long and it take 1-1,5 hour to walk to the beach.

    At the beach, we were almost alone and it was the most tropical experience. Really nice water, endless beach. There were a lot of restaurants, not all of them open at this time of year though. We had the best squid/cuttlefish at one of the restaurants; definitely try some seafood!

    Incredible experience! We are from Rio de Janeiro, come to Paraty for our honeymoon. We saw some reviews of Saco so Mamangua and knew we just had to go. First, you must go to Paraty Mirim by car, it’s a bumpy drive and best if on 4x4 wheels. The road signs and pretty clear and there is really nowhere else to go but the main road. Once at the very end, there are a few places to park your car at about R$20 until 18h. There plenty of captains and boats to chose from, but we most definitely recommend Mateus! He is a young captain, born in one of the islands just off the coast, very experienced and knows every corner of the place. Respectful of our time and would let us very comfortable to enjoy each spot on our own time. All the captains charge the same price because they work together as a very tight community. We paid 800 just the two of us, visited every spot of the Mamangua area, stopped for swimming and jumping rocks, had lunch at Restaurante do Dadico - very fresh fish. Also did an hour hike to Pico Pão de Açúcar, Mateus leaves right at the beach where the trail begins and then will be waiting once your back. Totally worth it!

    Cristal clear waters and sandy beach - perfect place to spend the day doing SUP, tanning or swimming!
    Boat costs 20R per person, definitely worth it!

    A beautiful town best enjoyed early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the crowd are less and the sun is not as high in the sky.
    do your research and you can visit all the historic sites for free , there is plenty of information on line, its perfectly safe and there is no need for a guide.
    Find out when the high tides are and you can take some great photos of the flooded streets

    You can travel from the first beach along through four beaches, Lula beach being one of them. I thought this one was the most beautifful beach of all of them, nice waves and sand. Very blue water. We even spotted turtles when we were there climbing around the rocks.

    A unique trip through this beautiful bay and its islands where the lush Atlantic mata meets the blue waters of the bay, a spectacle that you carry in your heart.

    Nice place to be with kids because the water is calm and it has few waves! The sand is clear and soft. We had a great time in the “Barraquinha da Leticia”, the food was great and she was REALLY nice to us!

    A good beach but make sure you pick a day when not every tour boat is going there . and there is plenty of room for all on the soft white sand and bright blue sea

    Very pretty beach! Lovely walk! Farily easy to get to. Car drive to Trindade, fairly good roads. You leave your car at the farthest beach point, there is parking for about R$20 the whole day. You walk by Praia do Meio, do a very little and light hike to Praia do Caixa d’Aço.

    We visited with a small group after a bike ride to the Falls. We had robson as a guide and he was amazing, very friendly and outgoing. We were interested in some of the fruits they use and he even took us for a walk arou d the farm and showed us the fruits and gave us a taste of some. They are happy for you to try the cachaca and the prices are reasonable. It was a big surprise how good this visit was especially considering it was free. You do not need to be in a group to visit and the staff will treat you great even as an individual. Highly recommend.

    This is one of the 4 stops we had on a daytrip. Beautiful place and really recommend if you like to swim in the ocean. Great for scuba diving and watching fishes.
