Trancoso

Beaches in Brazil. 14-Mar-2011 .BrazilBeachTravel
Just 30 kilometers from Porto Seguro, Trancoso combines tranquility with the typical beauty of the beaches of southern Bahia.

Trancoso, like much of the south coast of Bahia, has a geography marked by cliffs and high plateaus very close to the coast, beaches with reefs, and coconut trees growing on the clear sand. Similar in style, although as a much smaller village, than the neighboring Arraial d'Ajuda, Trancoso stands out as a destination that offers tranquility and good options for both accommodation and gastronomy; from super exclusive options such as the Club Med and the Terravista Golf complex, to inns and simple restaurants integrated into the landscape . Trancoso is located on the so-called coast of discovery, in the south of the state of Bahia and only 30 kilometers from Porto Seguro, which is its main access airport.( See how to get to Trancoso )

In the upper part of Trancoso, and in the vicinity of the "Cuadrado", you will find most of the tourist infrastructure of the place. Although there are also inns on the beach, which are usually relatively expensive compared to those of Porto Seguro and Arraial d'Ajuda, but also quieter.
