The beach is an amazing landscape, surrounded by mountains completely recovered with native and wonderful Mata Atlantica forest.

We really enjoyed this beach. It was a cool hike of about an hour to get there. The vegetation was beautiful and the beach relaxing. We sat on one kiosk and had a nice fried seafood dish. Take cash because the places do not accept cards due to lack of signal.

The beach is absolutely charming but getting there is not particularly easy. One needs to choose between a boat ride, which isnt very expensive or a good 3 km hike. The beach is beautiful but the waves are giant so unless you love surfing it's not really your place.

Praia do Sonho (Dream beach): one of the most beautiful spots in Paraty area! Wide and long, close only to a fishermans' village is the perfect place to relax and feel the brasilian rhytm. You can reach it crossing a easy walk trail trough the mountain and once there you can enjoy the crystalline sea and taste fresh fish and... More

We took the local bus from Paraty to Laranjeiras, and did the one hour walk on a nice path with a lot of butterflies through the rainforest. The beach was practically empty (primo march) with just enough swell for the children to have fun. Beautiful views and shadows, if needed, from under the castanjeiras-trees. Local fishermen and nice hippies runs... More

A very good place to relax and enjoy the beach! There is almost no waves and you can just stay in the beautiful and warm water the whole day!

If you are looking for a quiet place to go, try this beach! There are no waves, just a good place to relax. You need a boat to go !

I just don't know where it got its name... Don't expect peace and quiet there! The sea is very wavy and the waves are very strong. Not recommended for people who can't swim!! The acai and natural juices are amazing. The access is through a 1 hour trail. It's okay, not very hard. To go back, you can take a... More

The longish walk through the jungle is part of the adventure in getting to this beach. The forest shades you from the sun, which for me was handy, also gives you a better insight into the country. Saw a couple of funny looking spiders and a giant worm! Beach spectacular and would have been fun to stay over. With the... More
