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 place is all about relaxation and good food. Nearby Praia do Forte offers the local turtle project, where you can learn all about these elegant creatures and watch them up close.
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.
