Thanks to its bucolic surroundings, filled with beaches, hiking trails and waterfalls, Trindade is a choice destination for brazilian and international tourists. Situated within the municipality of Paraty, in Rio’s Green Coast, Trindade faces the challenge of growing while preserving the Atlantic Forest that surrounds the region. A classic fishing village, it was a hippie haven in the seventies and during the following decade was taken over by adventure-seekers.
Four beaches surround the Trindade village, each with its own particularities. Praia do Meio is a small bay with crystal-clear water. Praia dos Ranchos has the most concentration of bars and fishing boats. And it takes one single day to explore all of them using the available trails. The natural pool of Cachadaço is the standout. Though the farthest from town, it is the most popular among tourists. From there one can hike uphill for 40 minutes until reaching the Cabeça de Indio rock, from where one can appreciate the view of all the beaches and the Trindade village.
The village is located 25km south of Paraty, on the border with Ubatuba, and is easily accessible by an asphalt road.
