Brazilian coastal walk with oyster tasting

bra05-oysters-free-ducangriffin

Take a stroll along Santa Catarina’s idyllic shores before sampling the island’s famed oysters in a truly authentic setting.

Lose yourself on the golden sands of Ilha Santa Catarina as we let you in on the secrets of the island’s southernmost tip.

We suggest a relaxed one-hour walk along a serene, shaded stretch of coast to Naufragados beach, where a boat will carry you across the waves to a local oyster farm in a beautiful old Azorean fishing village. Santa Catarina is famed for its oysters and you’ll sample the very freshest, pulled straight from the ocean and washed down with a caipirinha cocktail – a true taste of Brazil.
