Hottest off the beaten track Brazilian beaches

Updated on May 4, 2015

Unspoiled and breathtaking beaches in Brazil

A practically deserted beach with turquoise sea, a row of palm tree, and sunny blue sky sounds like a perfect tropical paradise right? If the idea of super crowded beaches with hordes of tourists, loud music and vendors pushing all sorts of products on you make the dream of an idyllic vacation fade away, you should keep reading. I've compiled a list of some of the best-kept secret beaches in Brazil! Pack your swimsuit (or better get one down there!) and let's go!

Bahia - Praia do Taipe

Located in the village of Trancoso, in southern Bahia, 470 miles from Salvador, this rustic village features amazingly beautiful beaches with pristine waters, set against cliffs and the Mata Atlântica (coastal rainforest). This region is known as “The Discovery Coast” because it was here where the Portuguese settlers first arrived in Brazil.

Rio Grande do Norte - Galinhos

This bucolic beach is situated in the small fishing village that carries the same name, Galinhos. Once you arrive there, you have the impression the time has stopped. Very rustic it remains almost unknown by the tourists.

Alagoas - Praia de Carro Quebrado

Surrounded by colorful cliffs and turquoise sea, this almost deserted beach is considered one of the most beautiful in Brazil. Even though it's only 25 miles north of Maceió, the capital of Alagoas, the access to the beach is somewhat challenging, but totally worth it.

Santa Catarina - Praia Lagoinha do Leste

This beach is just 21 miles from downtown Florianópolis, but you will feel you are in a different world. To get there it could take around 1.5 to 2.5 hours, depending on the trail you choose (from Matadeiro beach or from Pântano do Sul beach)

You can also take a boat. Either way the views along the way are stunning.

Rio de Janeiro - Praia da Joatinga

Yes, it's possible to find a secluded beach within the city, away from the hustle and bustle. Blissfully quiet (especially on the weekdays), a Praia do Joá, as known by the locals, is a small beach situated in a residential condominium and surrounded by steep cliffs. Some advice: get there early, because the high tides cover the sand erasing the beach.

If you want to go, learning Brazilian Portuguese - can be very helpful
