The Beautiful Parallel Universe that is Trancoso

Finally arriving into Trancoso after drooling over ridiculously beautiful beach, jungle and village square scenes, is everything imagined.  It is a simply glorious place to be.  The pace of the square reflects the pace your lucky sojourn there will be.


Cocktails and yummy beach snacks: Uxua Praia Bar | Dinner with a seaview:El Gordo | Under the stars and watching capoeira in the square: Uxua | Cocktails at night: Jacare do Brasil


Trancoso is at its best when there is no plan but if you have a desire to be active then do one of these lovely experiences..... Horse-riding on the beach | Take a local capoeira class or cooking class | Hire a boat and sail to Mirror Beach and go fishing along the way


Walking on the Ceiling - Aysegul Savas | Machines Like Me - Ian McEwan | The Mister - E L James
