Paradise Island

Portuguese explorer Pedro Alvares Cabral first set foot on Brazilian soil back in 1500 along an area of Bahia that’s now known as the Discovery Coast. Just a few miles north of Cabral’s first landing, perched at the mouth of the João de Tiba River at the gateway to Brazil’s vast Atlantic Rainforest, lies breathtaking Paradise Island, the gateway to your ultimate, unique Brazilian private island holiday.

Portuguese explorer Pedro Alvares Cabral first set foot on Brazilian soil back in 1500 along an area of Bahia that’s now known as the Discovery Coast. Just a few miles north of Cabral’s first landing, perched at the mouth of the João de Tiba River at the gateway to Brazil’s vast Atlantic Rainforest, lies breathtaking Paradise Island, the gateway to your ultimate, unique Brazilian private island holiday.

Designed by award-winning Brazilian architect Ivan Smarcevscki, Paradise Island consists of 10 chalets, one Gran Salon and one spa, all in perfect harmony with the island’s nature. Highlighted by an exquisitely furnished two-story living room, the Gran Salon is the center of activity on Paradise Island. Because the pleasures of fine cuisine are essential for a complete experience, the industrial kitchen is equipped with infrastructure to accommodate the best, most demanding chefs. There is also a service area with a pantry, and complete laundry services. On the mezzanine, you’ll find an open area for games (including pool tables, ping pong table and foosball) and a closed area with space to play cards or use the high-quality home theater. The structures are made from reforested eucalyptus trees, topped with natural-fiber roofs that nearly reach the ground, and balanced with frameless glass walls showcasing the gorgeous surroundings.

Besides the Gran Salon there are many options for sports lovers. A 650-meter Cooper jogging track runs around the island, accented with coconut trees and mangroves, and with views of marine fauna, flora and an infinitude of local birds. Small coves with private beaches, continuously reshaped by tidal changes, beckon for a refreshing swim. The island’s official tennis court is lit for your enjoyment by day or night. Fishing on Paradise Island is excellent too, either with a rod at the pier or with a reel at Boqueirão Reef. A complete spa features a steam sauna, gym, massage room, showers and whirlpool.

More recreation possibilities wait just beyond the island. Quick boat tours up and down João de Tiba River offer glimpses of nature’s wonders. And less than 30 miles offshore in the Atlantic lies the huge, world-famous Royal Charlotte Bank, one of world’s best regions to catch coveted blue marlin and sailfish as well as other local fish.

Thanks to its long history—stretching to the Tupiniquim Indians well before European colonization—Brazil’s Discovery Coast is sometimes called the “Cradle of Brazil,” and was designated a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site in 1999. Paradise Island occupies a special place along this coast, just across from the popular and historic beach town of Santa Cruz Cabrália. Explore preserved areas of the Atlantic Rainforest on horseback, by trenzinho (little train), or just by walking on trails monitored by native guides. Visit Coroa Vermelha, where a 45-foot granite and steel cross marks the spot where the first mass was celebrated in Brazil and craft stores are filled with local art. Learn about the fascinating heritage of Brazil’s native peoples with a visit to the Pataxó Indian Reservation. Or thrill to the great sights, terrific dining and pulsing nightlife of the city of Porto Seguro and vibrant, charming Trancoso.

For the majority, entry to Paradise Island comes via Porto Seguro International Airport, just 15 miles south of Santa Cruz Cabrália. Flights arrive here from most of Brazil’s major cities and around the world. From Santa Cruz Cabrália, it’s just a five-minute ride by water to Paradise Island. Arrival is possible by motorboat or sailboat, with the island’s pier able to hold vessels up to 70 feet. An island helipad allows for private air access, too, so that you can immerse in the pleasures of Paradise Island as quickly as possible.
