From Paraty Mirim to Saco do Mamanguá
Trail: The trail leaves the beach of Paraty Mirim and takes around 1h30. The first part of the walk is a very big hill and takes around 25 minutes to pass this part, it's kind of hardcore but nothing that enough water does not solve.
Then the trail looks good, a cool trail in the middle of the woods. The trick not to end up entering someone's house is, after seeing the first light pole, follow the electric cables and poles until you reach the front of the Hostel, there is no mistake! It is the first beach with a "market" that you will see.
The trail begins just after the Environmental Police, near the pier of Paraty Mirim, on the right side of the road. Unfortunately there is no signage, but everyone knows where to start. Once you've entered the trail the direction is going up the mountain and not going around the mountain, as you can see in the map of the trail.
