Youthful Trancoso is quite captivating. It's a paradise of white sand beaches stretching as far as the eye can see with calm, crystal blue waters and coconut palms, surrounded by thick green Atlantic vegetation. Sitting atop a grassy bluff overlooking fantastic beaches, this tiny rustic village has a relaxed air with a pretty assortment of guest houses.

Surrounding it are tropical foliage and colorful buildings, boutiques, open-air bars and restaurants. It’s very secluded with a simple infrastructure which adds to its charm and enduring tranquility. It's known for its wide, grassy and, most importantly, car-free quadrado (main square). The sight of the quadrado at night are magical. Trancoso is famous for its full-moon beach parties.
