Create an itinerary including Sono Beach
Flanked by a lush wall of rainforest and with golden sands that stretch as far as your eye can see, Sono Beach is a deserted paradise well removed from the bustle of Rio. You can reach it by boat or take a 50-minute trek from Vila do Oratório, encountering monkeys and toucans along the way. Emerging from the forest on to the beach, you will be blown away by its sublime beauty. The beach remains unspoiled with very little infrastructure, despite a small fishing community who have made it their home, but you will find a few kiosks whose owners will tell you stories of the island from times gone by. Casa da Empada, in particular, serves great sandwiches and cold beer, which you can enjoy under the shade of an almond tree while looking out over the translucent green-blue ocean. From the small church in the middle of the beach, you can take a 20-minute trail leading to natural pools and waterfalls, perfect for some scenic swimming. Put Sono Beach and other Paraty attractions into our Paraty online route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • You can reach Praia do Sono by walking through a 3km trail. It's not a difficult one but be sure to use repellent.
  • After a walk of 1.30 hour through the jungle get there ( you can go by boat, but it's not the same feeling). The beach is very beautiful and clean. There is a variety of restaurants even being an isolated beach. There are lots of camping sites if you want to stay overnight.
