Stylish, low key and still unspoiled, Trancoso is a charming and authentic former fishing village near to some extraordinary beaches

A popular destination for the Brazilian jet set, fashionable yet relaxed Trancoso on Brazil’s Northeastern coast is an authentic yet sophisticated fishing village surrounded by beautiful beaches. This region was where Pedro Alvares Cabral, the Portuguese explorer who discovered Brazil, first landed in the early 16th century. Local life revolves around the old village square that dates from the same period. There are a handful of top quality, stylish and boutique luxury hotels as well as some great dining options and smart boutique shops. Trancoso’s main attraction, however, are the miles of un-spoilt and often deserted beaches.

Best Time To Visit Trancoso

Trancoso has a tropical climate and enjoys warm temperatures all year round. The high season is from December until March when it is hottest and there are lots of local festivals, holidays and carnival.

June until September are the winter months and the off season, but the weather is still warm and you’ll have the place to yourself.
