With its chic bohemian vibe and endless coastline of golden Atlantic beaches, Trancoso is a go-to destination for a heady mix of adventure and Brazilian beach life.
We love Uxua House Hotel with ten cottages that blend perfectly with the historical centre of Trancoso. Four of the houses were once traditional 16th Century fishermen’s lodgings. Surrounded by lush gardens and architecture, and cuisine that honours the history and heritage of Trancoso, this is an idyllic haven that never lets you lose a sense of place.
If you can tear yourself away from the ocean waves and laid-back beach bars of Trancoso, it is worth exploring the stunning beaches of Corumbau (a word that means ‘Far from Everything’ in the local Indian dialect). We will arrange a private boat and skipper to take you to some of Bahia’s most scenic spots where white sand dissolves into clear Atlantic waters.
For an active morning cycle to Itaquena Beach. Dirt roads shaded by forests take you to Itaquena Farm, where buffalo roam, and you are free to explore this beautiful farmland. The bike trail leads to clifftop views of the ocean and secluded coves where you can swim and rest before riding back to Trancoso.
From Trancoso, a direct flight from Porto Seguro airport takes you back to Rio or Sao Paulo for onward connections or further adventures in Brazil and beyond.
