Located on Brazil's Emerald Coast, Paraty boasts a backdrop of forested mountains and the bay is peppered with beautiful islands and beaches, best explored by boat. Head out on a private tour and swim in natural pools before visiting a Cachaça distillery.
While Paraty town itself is brimming with charm, the region is also surrounded by stunning nature, with over 65 islands dotted around the bay and countless golden beaches which can only be reached by boat. Enjoy a private speed boat or fishing boat tour of the bay, visiting some of its many islands and some of the region's best spots for swimming and snorkelling.
Paraty was also the original producer and exporter of Cachaça, a sweet and strong sugar cane spirit which is best known as the key ingredient in the Brazilian national cocktail, the caipirinha. Following the boat trip, pay a visit to a small independent distillery which only opens its doors to a select few visitors, yet its produce is regarded as one of the best cachaças in Brazil. Maria Izabel, who created this delicious spirit, will offer an introduction to the processes involved, as well as the opportunity to taste (and purchase) a variety of the different blends.
