Brazil was particularly focused. Basic structures were first settled in a minimaslist but spiritual concept. In the 90´s those old hippies, along with new investors, improved the existing infra-structure, bringing comfort, finesse and savoir faire, making some of those hidden paradises an exclusive destination.

Terra Brasilis selected 10 best beaches HC destination and 3 hidden paradises for your enjoyment. Explore and enjoy your selected paradise with safety and comfort: no stress, no hurry.

Today the best place to feel the atmosphere of Trancoso is the Quadrado, the main square of the village that is a large football field separated by 2 lines of colored colonial house and at the end is the church and a beautiful view of the ocean. At Quadrado in day time, there is boys playing football and horses grazing the sparse grass but at night everything changes and bars, restaurants and chick stores opens for a very exclusive public. The nearest airport is Porto Seguro (aprox. one hour distant). Choose a place to stay that best suits your style. You can stay right in beach front or if you prefer a different option stay at Quadrado.
