Our Expert Guides will lead you along a picturesque trail following the southern tip of Santa Catarina Island which leads to Naufragados Beach. Due to its geographical isolation, this beach is one of the best preserved in the area, and boasts not only pristine stretches of sand and sea, but majestic forests, rivers, and hills as well.

We will set out on about a 50 minute journey, following a beautiful 2.3 km trail which leads to the beach. This trail begins with a small incline which eventually flattens out and crosses a dazzling fresh water stream. You will enjoy being completely immersed in some of Brazil's most pristine natural environments as you decompress and take in the breathtaking surroundings. When we reach Naufragados Beach, you'll delight in clear water streams, amazing panoramic views, a wealth of flora and fauna, and the virgin beaches' natural, wild beauty. With over 1 km of sandy shores, this is the perfect place to enjoy a sunny day. Whether you prefer calm seas, great waves, or warm rivers, Naugragados has it all!

While on the beach, you'll notice a trail on the right side that leads to a picturesque historical lighthouse. This short, pleasant trail will take you to a beautiful lookout which features amazing views of the idyllic beaches and ancient Our Lady of Araçatuba Fort which dates back to 1742. Additionally, you'll delight in observing curious dolphins swimming and playing in a small cove - truly an awe-inspiring sight.

If you happen to visit on a weekend or during a holiday, you're in luck! Usually a couple of restaurants will be open these days, with their savory aromas and rich flavors inviting you to sample some of their delicious traditional seafood dishes - sure to be quite the treat!

Join us for a unique adventure, exploring the nearly untouched Naufragados Beach, while enjoying a healthy activity outdoors and discovering dreamy natural landscapes.
