Saco de Mamanguá

Top choice bay in Paraty

This gorgeous fjord-shaped inlet cuts a narrow 7km channel into the mountains southeast of Paraty. Various Paraty-based tour companies offer boat trips here. Alternatively, hire a guide for the strenuous 2km hike up the dramatic peak known as Pão de Açúcar do Mamanguá (438m) for excellent views of the bays and islands below.
