Trancoso, Brazil

Located just south of the historic town of Porto Seguro, this sleepy village is rapidly becoming one of the most sought-after beach destinations in Brazil.

The original small fishing village still exists, and life there is centred on the main grassy square, with its charming whitewashed 17th century church, which claims to have held the first mass in Brazil.

Stretching away from the village are miles of wonderful beaches and some of the most chic beach accommodation in the country.
