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 other 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.
With approximately 300 sunny days per year and an average temperature of 28°C, the climate in the Maraú Peninsula is always warm and welcoming.
Summertime is between December and March. It has the sunniest weather with temperatures around 30 degrees during daytime and 25 at night. With cooling summer breezes coming from the beach, it doesn’t get uncomfortably hot.
Between May and August there is wet season in the south of Bahia. During that time the climate is variable with a higher risk of rain and wind. But don’t let that put you off: there are still plenty of beautiful summery days.
Daytime temperatures stay at a comfortable 22 to 28°C, dropping down at nigh between 18 to 24°C.
