Trancoso is a rustic chic retreat perched on a bluff overlooking Nativos and Coqueiros beaches on Bahia’s pristine Discovery Coast. At the heart of Trancoso is a rectangular Quadrado featuring a lush central square, highlighted by a white chapel framed by the sea! Surrounded by brightly-colored former fisherman cottages that now house boutiques, B&Bs, and restaurants, local kids practice soccer and animals graze lazily on the grassy grounds. The wooded surroundings replete with banana and torch ginger extend to the mangrove swamps where boardwalks lead to the white sands down the hill. Attracted by the laid-back vibe, hippies, celebrities, and locals alike sunbathe and sway on unspoiled beaches, thanks to the protected coastline. Back in town, elders gather for evening conversations under the Table of the Old, while local musicians entertain with Brazilian tunes across the cozy bars. Trancoso’s shores swell up during festivities and year-end celebrations when discerning and stylish jet setters descend here for moonlight parties, and playing golf!
