Several of the hundreds of beaches in the bay of Paraty are accessible only by boat or trail. Praia do Sono, famous for its beauty of white sands and blue sea is a wonderful scenery.
Many of the 65 islands in the Paraty archipelago have paradisiacal beaches with clear water. It is worth taking a boat trip to the islands Pelada and Ilha do Cedro.
Beaches with easy access and ideal for swimming are Iriri (within the Pataxós reservation), São Gonçalinho, Pitanga, São Gonçalo, Prainha and Praia do Meio in Trindade.
