Value Brazil: The emerald coast

10 days from £1197pp
 

Private Journey

 

Brazil is a colossal country and if you wish to get to know it well you’ll need to make several visits - but some of you will be after a beach holiday in just a corner of this vast territory. The area around Rio de Janeiro, itself one of the most glamorous and colourful cities in the world, is an obvious choice. Here you find some of the most exotic beaches, fringed by tumbling jungle vegetation, and some of the prettiest historic towns and villages, situated on tranquil bays peppered with unspoilt forest-mantled islands. 

This short holiday, with time spent on sun-drenched beaches but also beyond, begins in Rio on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, before heading down the coast to the historic colonial port of Paratí and thence you take a ferry to Ilha Grande, a vehicle-free, forest-cloaked island, once a backpacker’s secret but now studded with pretty barefoot pousadas.
