Emerald Coast

Brazil - Paraty - med.jpg

This stunning coast stretches from Rio southwards and forms an unspoilt stretch of Atlantic coastline, with inlets, deserted bays, tiny islands and small colonial towns, amid lush tropical forest.

Discover the island of Ilha Grande with a rustic charm, laidback atmosphere and over 100 beaches as well as waterfalls and mountains. Island hiking trails take you to deserted beaches and lagoons, other bays are only accessible by boat. Further south, Paraty offers an escape to another world where time stands still and motor traffic is not allowed into the historic old town.

Perched on the edge of a bay as the river meets the sea, Paraty is a crisscross of tiny streets lined with whitewashed colonial houses, doors and window frames colourfully painted, flowers and vines spilling over the high garden walls. Down by the water's edge the pier is lined with dozens of boats to cruise around the island-dotted bay, with a stop for picnicking and swimming off a deserted beach.

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
