Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Paraty / Sono Beach
Flanked by a lush wall of rainforest and with golden sands that stretch as far as your eye can see, Sono Beach is a deserted paradise well removed from the bustle of Rio. You can reach it by boat or take a 50-minute trek from Vila do Oratório, encountering monkeys and toucans along the way. Emerging from the forest on to the beach, you will be blown away by its sublime beauty. The beach remains unspoiled with very little infrastructure, despite a small fishing community who have made it their home, but you will find a few kiosks whose owners will tell you stories of the island from times gone by. Casa da Empada, in particular, serves great sandwiches and cold beer, which you can enjoy under the shade of an almond tree while looking out over the translucent green-blue ocean. From the small church in the middle of the beach, you can take a 20-minute trail leading to natural pools and waterfalls, perfect for some scenic swimming. Put Sono Beach and other Paraty attractions into our Paraty online route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

I loved this place, it is very chill, comfy, and quiet. It is mostly people who are very laid back, there is no phone signal there, and the internet connection is not one of the best. This is a place.... more

Easy to get there from Paraty. Bus leaves fairly regularly to Vila Oratorio and from there you can walk the (fairly) simple 3km walk to the beach. It was pretty slippery when I went but if you are of reasonable fitness then it shouldn’t be a problem.
You can reach Praia do Sono by walking through a 3km trail. It's not a difficult one but be sure to use repellent.
After a walk of 1.30 hour through the jungle get there ( you can go by boat, but it's not the same feeling). The beach is very beautiful and clean. There is a variety of restaurants even being an isolated beach. There are lots of camping sites if you want to stay overnight.
Beautiful beach! I took the bus from the central station in Paraty going to Vila Oratorio. I got down in the last stop, that's where the hike starts. There're signs. Took me almost 1 hour to get to Praia do Sono, it was really hot and the path goes up and down. Can be slippery in some parts. Beware of snakes, spiders and scorpions (there's even a sign about it). I just saw a dead snake in the path. I had lunch in the only place open. It was good. Guess that low season has something to do with it cause there's plenty of bars/restaurants in the shore. There's also camping sites, it's a great option to stay here longer and explore nearby beaches. There's also a 5 nights hike, camping along the way and bringing your own food. The sea had waves, and it was fun! Be conscious about your level in the water as there's no lifeguards or whatsoever. I loved the fact there were few people. Definitely worth coming here for an entire day or more!! I 😊😁😄 I went back hiking, but I saw people taking a boat
Great place to stop by, worth the visit. You can get there by hiking or taxi boat. I went hinking and at the end of the day I got a boat back to our car. The locals are very receptive and their food is amazing, you won't regret the visit. Don't be afraid of the dogs they are friendly and like to be around for company and they like to play.
