Heading South

If the beach towns around São Paulo are too hopping for you, there's Ponta dos Ganchos, a resort in Santa Catarina, an hour's plane ride south of the city. There are 20 bungalows, visible only to passing fishing boats. Islands in the bay are linked by a boardwalk, and in the summer (our winter) turquoise waters roll up onto the shore. From $580 to $1,075; 55-48/3262-5000; pontadosganchos.com.br.
