Once just a small fishing village, Porto Belo was recently rediscovered by vacationing Brazilians drawn by the fabulous beaches here. The town itself is still quaint, but the surrounding waterfront communities are becoming larger and are the main reason to come. The beaches are beautiful and the surf is lukewarm year-round.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
The beaches are the main draw here. Perequê is the largest one, and you'll want to take the time to explore it. Open to the sea, it is great for sunning, swimming, and water sports of all sorts. Needless to say, anyone visiting Porto Belo should bring a swimsuit.
Make sure to sample Cachaša, a unique Brazilian spirit. Cachaša is a strong, 80-proof liquor distilled from sugarcane and aged for one year. Try it in a caipirinha, made with Cachaša, crushed limes, sugar and ice. The result is a sweet, tangy, potent cocktail that is fast becoming popular around the world.
While it's not known as a shopping destination, Porto Belo does feature a string of beachfront shops with art, bikinis and locally made jewelry. It can be a fun way to spend an hour or two out of the sun if you grow tired of the beach.
Brazil's currency is the Brazilian real (BRL). Most stores will accept credit cards; however, traveler's checks are not usually accepted. You may get a discount if you pay with cash.
