Jabaquara Beach was nothing special to be honest. There's a few islands not far offshore that you can kayak or stand-up paddle to but it's nothing spectacular. I visited to kill some time but I wouldn't plan an itineray around visiting this beach.

Not the nicest beach really. If you want a nice one catch a bus to Trinidade or take a boat trip around the islands of Paraty. However, it's a good place to go running in the morning or evening or maybe to have a few...More

This is a great area of Paraty. You can walk here in 15 minutes from the historic centre - it's up an over a hill though so perhaps take a cab if you find walking difficult. This is a beach area where all kinds of...More

This quiet beach has calm waters and no waves. It's great for children and the elderly. There are several restaurants and snack bars on the beach and many pousadas to choose from. It's about 2 km. from the very busy center of town..

Good beach close to Paraty center so best if you are unwilling to travel very far. The water is very warm, almost too warm. Great beach bars here too.

This was my 2nd visit Paraty and again I'd made the 1 hr bus journey to the beautiful stretch of Trinidade. But no one had really told me about the more local Jabaquara beach - c.20 mins walk away. It had mixed reviews but I...More

This is a better option to go to than Praia do Pontal. It is a short walk from Paraty and the beach is a bit more quite and looks better. Not a very spectacular beach though.
