Side Trips from Sao Paulo Sights

Barra do Sahy

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

Families with young children favor small, quiet Barra do Sahy. Its narrow strip of sand (with a bay and a river on one side and rocks on the other) is steep but smooth, and the water is clean and calm. Kayakers paddle about, and divers are drawn to the nearby Ilha das Couves. Area restaurants serve mostly basic fish dishes with rice and salad. Note that Barra do Sahy's entrance is atop a slope and appears suddenly—be on the lookout around marker Km 174. Amenities:

food and drink, lifeguards, parking (no fee). Best for: sunrise, snorkeling.
