Pousada Picinguaba, Paraty, Brazil
The delightful Pousada Picinguaba is situated about half an hour’s drive south of Paraty on a calm and peaceful bay with a sandy beach. It rests at the heart of a tropical coastal forest running between Rio and São Paulo.
The pousada offers ten spacious rooms, and the food is excellent and carefully prepared using the best local ingredients. There is no TV or telephone as the owners of Picinguaba want you to simply relax and enjoy the gorgeous natural surroundings.
A long stretch of virtually deserted beach is about a 30 minute walk (or 30 minute kayak trip) from the pousada.
Please note that access to and from the pousada and the village beach is approximately five minutes' walk up or down some steps. These are not even under foot and so may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.
