About Trindade

The beauty of Trindade is that it is still relatively unknown to foreign tourists giving it a much more Brazilian feel than the well established gringo hangouts of Paraty and Ilha Grande. Geographically speaking Trindade is one of those special places that exist in only a few places on the planet. It has a stunning collection of white sand beaches that are sandwiched between steep rainforested mountains and the tropical Atlantic Ocean. The village sits right on the edge of the Serra do Bocaina National Park and the natural pools of Cachadaco are one of the park’s highlights.

With a permanent population of about a thousand people Trindade only started to make the transition from sleepy fishing village to beach destination 10 years ago when the twisty mountain access road “Deus me livre” was eventually paved. The village still maintains a certain rustic charm and fishing continues to provide the principle form of income for a number of the local inhabitants.
