Our time in Paraty was short, too short, but we did make time on our first day there to visit Praia do Cachadaco in the nearby town of Trindade. Anytime I mentioned to a Brazilian that we were visiting Paraty, they brought up this the Praia do Cachadaco and I’m a big fan of going where the locals go.
I can certainly see why Praia do Cachadoco is a favorite.
We went in the late afternoon, so it wasn’t at all crowded but still lively, with a mix of families, couples and groups of kids whose youthful experience I envy. This beach had a very local vibe. We may have been the only tourists there. We posted up in some chairs, bought Brazilian beers from a food and beverage stand and simply relaxed, my favorite way to enjoy a beach.
We didn’t stay at Cachadaco long enough to warrant a full post, but I hope you’ve enjoyed this snapshot of a truly beautiful place. Next time we’re in Paraty (and there will be a next time – this place really captured our hearts), I hope to return and spend more time exploring the eclectic city of Trindade as well as more of its beaches.
Oh, and one final snapshot – this gorgeous sunset we spotted on our way back to Paraty.

Stunning views! And even though you didn’t get more time there, a day at the beach is a day at the beach!
I love how much traveling you guys are doing while you’re there. I’m sure it gets exhausting (in between stunning beaches and picture-perfect sunsets) but it’s awesome to follow along 🙂

Beautiful photos! If you hadn’t posted where you were, then it would be hard to tell if you were in Brazil or some of the remote beaches of Thailand that we so much about!
Yes, it shocked me how much it looked like photos I’ve seen of Southeast Asia, even though I’ve not been there yet.
