The North Atlantic coast of Brazil must be one of the most beautiful and untouched coastlines in South America. Visit any of our favourite beach properties in Bahia, and you will find miles upon miles of soft sand flanked by drooping palm trees and wild Atlantic waves almost to yourself. Colonial towns like Salvador and Trancoso are worth visiting for their Caribbean vibe and rich history.
Travel 270 miles off the coast of Brazil, and you will encounter the paradise island of Fernando do Noronha. This submerged volcanic formation is a vision of ivory beaches, hidden coves, a warm sapphire ocean and reefs brimming with a multitude of marine life. In the far north, accessed from the port town of Sao Luis, is Jericoacoara (or Jeri to the locals). The long journey to get here (unless you have landed by helicopter) is worth every hour. Crystal clear pools form between wrinkled dunes of the softest sand, and charming family-run pousadas feel a million miles from home as you know it.
