ABOUT TRANCOSO: Former fishing village turned trendy getaway, Trancoso is famous for its white, semi-deserted beaches with cristal clear water and rich marine fauna, protected by reefs and with natural pools during low tide. With a semi-tropical climate and an average temperature of 24º C, its natural wonders epitomize an alluring invitation to sip coconut juice and caipirinhas while the sunlight glitzes above. Trancoso is located 23 km from Porto Seguro, in the Discovery Coast of southern Bahia. Considered the starting point of Brazilian history and culture, it is where Portuguese explorer Pedro Alvares Cabral disembarked more than five centuries ago, and was declared World Natural Heritage by UNESCO in 1999. Beaches like Espelho, Coqueiro, Pedra Grande and Nativos are enjoyed by a mixture of natives, Brazil's free-spirited elite from the southeast and winter birds from Europe and North America, some of which have settled down and set up business in the place - not to mention celebrity regulars like Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bündchen. Quadrado, the main square, is the dominant attraction after the sea, sun and sand triptych - an open field with uneven cobblestones bordered by charming candy-coloured low-rise wooden houses and, at the far end, a small chalk-white church, the second oldest in Brazil. Behind it, a dramatic view overlooking the pristine Atlantic Ocean. At night, dainty lanterns sparkle from the mango and almond trees and art galleries stay open well past midnight while glasses clink and local music (think samba, bossa nova and forró) echoes in the outdoor tables of hip bars and restaurants. Glamorous beach clubs make the perfect setting to watch the sunrise's mesmerizing pallette.Architecture project by André Luque Arquitetura / Pictures: Cláudio Ferraz Pinheiro.
