If you think this is it, then you are completely mistaken. There are plenty of amazing destinations on the outskirts of Porto Seguro that are also worth your visit.  Among them, Trancoso is one of the most popular with tourists, due to the wonderful local beaches, restaurants, and clubs. Beaches such as Nativos, Coqueiros, and Barra do Rio dos Frades are some of the favorites.
