Praia do Rosa beyond the (marvelous) beach

Praia do Rosa is one of Brazil Ecojourneys' favourite destinations.

Not only is the single Brazilian member of the exclusive "Most Beautiful Bays of the World", a nursing ground for the giant Southern Right Whales and home to some of the best waves (and the best Surf Camp ever!) in the country but also offers loads of other outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling and horse-riding.

Here we give you a glimpse of a couple of  day treks that start directly from your guesthouse, ideal for those cloudy days or whenever you want a break from the beach. And if you are there for whale watching, they offer great viewing points.

1. Caminho do Rei - Praia do Luz - Praia do Rosa 

Beginning of the trail from Caminho do Rei.

Insider´s tip: finish with a well-deserved cocktail at the deck of San Diego Grill Bar for great views of the Rosa bay. Works for both treks. All roads lead to Rosa. :-)

Best of Brazil (by The Times!): Waterfalls, Whales and... Wine!

A recent article in the The Times of London highlighted Southern Brazil: The Iguazu Falls, the coastal area of Santa Catarina - which host the amazing spectacle of Southern Right Whales in Winter and some of the best beaches in Brazil in Summer- , the canyons of Aparados da Serra and the wine regions of Santa Catarina and Rio Gande do Sul, which offer high quality wine unknown to the general international wine drinker.

Surprised? Before and after the Olympics come and discover with Brazil Ecojourneys what South Brazil has to offer in an easily combined, relaxed 2 week itinerary.
