📃 Description and information of Hiking in Watermelon Waterfall

The biggest waterfall in Paraty and the most remote !!

Inside the Serra da Bocaina park in Paraty, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the region is hidden, the Melancia waterfall.

With the biggest waterfall in Paraty, Watermelon is imposing.

With a medium level trail, inside the protected forest, with an exuberant flora and many birds, very similar to what the first Europeans who arrived here saw. A virgin forest, cared for by its inhabitants, indigenous.

After a leisurely walk, we reached the first fall and the place of the first bath.

On this first arrival, we will have a splendid view of the magnitude of this waterfall and the dive is almost automatic.

We contemplate, relax a little and continue for another 15 minutes of walking to the second fall, from where, in addition to bathing in the crystal clear water, we make our snack and rest for the return.

Our tour follows safety rules and health protocols, established by the health and Abeta departments On foot, you feel the aromas of the forest!
