Thanks to its unique location, the Peninsula of Marau is largely undeveloped and has many peaceful seaside villages just waiting to be discovered, along with endless pristine beaches, tropical forests, rivers, and ecological preserves. The beaches on the ocean side of the peninsula are the longest, and offer the best surf. At low tide, their coral reefs create natural swimming pools for calmer waters. On the side the peninsula faces Camamu Bay, where the water is calm and countless islands and waterways punctuate the seascape.
Nestled between Bahia’s rocky Atlantic coast and tropical rainforest lies the hip and colourful town of Itacaré. A formally notorious hangout for Dutch and Portuguese pirates, in recent years this former fishing village has become the hub of Bahian culture. A popular destination for surfers, hikers and eco-tourists alike, Itacaré is especially popular during New Year's and Carnival. While the beaches close to town are well stocked with lively restaurants, hotels, and bars, just a few miles down the coast you'll find the beaches well preserved and free of development.
