Southern Coast

The Southern coast of Brazil is easily reached from Rio de Janeiro and/or Sao Paulo. North of Rio is the lively resort of Buzios with a wide choice of beaches, whilst traveling south one finds the beautiful region of Parati, with a lovely colonial center.

The Southern coast of Brazil is easily reached from Rio de Janeiro and/or Sao Paulo. Near Rio is the sophisticated resort of Buzios which, after Brigette Bardot visited it as a quaint little fishing village in her heyday, soon became known as the St Tropez of South America boasting beautiful beaches, lagoons, cobbled streets, charming restaurants and boutiques. Other destinations include the colonial jewel of Parati and the paradisical island of Ilha Grande.

Further south, palm trees give way to pine forests, coffee plantations, cattle ranches and tranquil valleys. Visit the southern state of Santa Catarina and watch Southern Right Whales as they make their remarkable journey from the Antarctic to breed and nurse their calves (Jul to Nov), or visit the laid-back coastal city of Florianopolis, with its stunning beaches ranging from quiet bays to excellent surfing hot-spots.
