Unforgettable Beaches for a Perfect Vacation

Praia do Perigoso
Possibly one of the best secret beaches in Brazil is Praia do Perigoso. This is also one of the most difficult beaches to get to, though. If you want to visit, it will take an hour and a half to hike to the cliffs overlooking the beach near Rio de Janeiro.
Praia do Riacho
Praia do Riacho is considered to be an untouched, and almost wild, beach near São Miguel dos Milagres. The beach itself consists of golden sand and a wonderful blue green ocean.
Taipus de Fora Beach
Taipus de Fora Beach, at Bahia, is about seven kilometers of beautiful beach lined by sweeping palm trees. At low tide, the coral reefs create beautiful pools perfect for snorkeling to see the array of marine life.
