Chilling out on Ilha Grande
Sit back with a Caipirinha on the beaches of the picturesque island of Ilha Grande. A weekend hangout for Brazilians, this island offers fresh seafood, jungle hiking trails to deserted beaches and a laidback, relaxed atmosphere. You’ll find small pousadas lining the beach front backed by lush jungle and calm, clear waters for a cooling dip.
Windswept beaches of Bahia
Lay back and relax on the Bahian coast. Take a dip in the pool, stroll along the wide sandy beaches or try some African inspired Bahian fish stew with an icy Caipirinha – this part of Brazil is all about relaxation and good food. For something more remote and adventurous, head over to the beautiful Ilha de Boipeba for a taste of the island life.
Diving on Dolphin Island
Take a dip in the turquoise waters and spot brightly-coloured fish darting around you. Fernando de Noronha offers no less than 16 stunning beaches, countless coves and hiking trails through dense jungle. Learn to dive, take a boat ride out on the calm sea or sit back with a good book on the pristine sand.
Laze in turquoise lagoons
Porto Galinhas offers 7 miles of sandy beach lined with coconut palm trees. During low tide, a wall of coral right off the coast creates the most beautiful natural swimming lagoons. The deep blue warm, clear water transforms the lagoons into delightful open-air baths to relax the day away in.
