Pousada Água de Côco, Brazil

If you’ve ever thought about trading everything in to go and live in a hut on a beach somewhere, then you need to read on. Close your eyes and imagine a place worth relocating for, a place where you could truly embody the South American’s passion for life; somewhere where you wouldn’t let life pass you by in a blur of back-to-back meetings and traffic jams. Open your eyes to Pousada Água de Côco.

Set at the end of a 30-kilometer potholed track in Icaraizinho de Amontada in the Northeast Region of Brazil, this is the kind of place you arrange your entire itinerary around. Three wooden bungalows sit on a picturesque palm fringed beach, facing the clear turquoise waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. Spend your days relaxing in your own personal hammock and your nights feasting on stone-cooked fish and vegetables at Pousada’s restaurant.
