The former fishing village of Trancoso has become a charming Eden for travellers exploring Brazil’s coastal state of Bahia — think bohemian attitudes, colourful pousadas (inns) and pretty restaurants with vivid facades. A leafy promenade which runs along the beach is the perfect place to relax on a warm afternoon or spend an evening while watching passers-by stroll along the water’s edge. It won’t take long before you’re fitting in like a local and adopting the pace of life in Trancoso – enjoy a well-deserved siesta on the terrace, laze on the beach or improvise a game of football with the locals.
In a place where your hardest decision is choosing between white or red sand, turquoise or emerald water, you'll soon make yourself at home. For the more active holiday goer, gallop on horseback down wide stretches of sand or hike through dense jungle, which monkeys and other wildlife call home. Enjoy the breath-taking view from Praia dos Nativos while indulging in a meal and watching the sun set over the village of Trancoso. In the evening, the main square, Quadrado, is filled with restaurants, bars and live music, which offers a great opportunity to immerse yourself in local culture by sipping chilled caipirinhas, enjoying moquecas and dancing the night away.
