South America Beaches

South America is blessed with a variety of different beaches from the roller waves off the Pacific on the western side of the continent, to the calmer waters you will find in southern Brazil to the vast virgin beaches of Venezuela on the Caribbean and the more rustic beaches of Uruguay that look out over the Atlantic Ocean.
Whether you are looking for surf, crystal clear waters for snorkelling or nice calm tides for paddle boarding there'll be something for you. It all boils down to when you want to travel and what style of accommodation you are looking for. We tend to love the smaller boutique options filled with luxury and character and close to local towns and villages for some delicious evening meals and maybe a little cocktail.
