This little hideaway of Des de Paraty, in the State of Rio de Janeiro is the perfect place to take the boat to Pouso da Cajaíba. A small cove where fishermen used to rest before continuing on their perilous travelling. Whilst leaving the cove it is possible to reach other routes and quiet beaches, without cars, buildings, noise ... A little paradise.
Paraty is a small pleasant city in Brazil, on the ocean between the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Its appearance is preserved, old Portuguese colonial style built with cobbled streets, full of color everywhere. Highlights: its small churches, simple yet warm, with white walls and ocher yellow accents, typical colonial style. The city of Paraty in the 50s was declared Heritage of Humanity precisely to preserve the colonial style of all the buildings.
Praia do Sono (Sleepy Beach) is a fishermen village neighboring the summer conodos of wealthy Laranjeiras, exposing Brazil's shocking social contrast. It is only accessible on foot and has a very pleasant freshwater waterfall.
It is possible to hike all of the deserted beaches on a full 3-day hiking and camping trip around the peninsula just south of historical Paraty town. These pictures were taken during my third time doing it.
One night, at 11:34 pm, we went with Alexander to see how Pontal looked from one of the houses that is on the fort. When I look up I saw a beautiful palm tree, and a full moon that created an overall feeling of peace and harmony. The moon was the only light available throughout Pontal.
