Barra Grande is off the beaten path, just the way we like it. An unpaved road which goes up to the tip of the peninsula of Maraú stretches approximately 40km north. In good conditions you drive at regular speed as it's maintained fairly well. During periods of heavy rain it can become challenging. Please contact us prior to your arriave and we give you an update on the road condition.
This means that some amenities in the region are… limited! Pleaese find some helpful travel advices to bear in mind for your stay at the Peninsula of Maraú.
There are no banks or ATMs on the whole peninsula. Please take some cash with you as many places (hotels/bars/restaurants) do not accept bank- nor creditcards. (At Ka BRU Beach Boutique Hotel we accept MasterCard and VISA of course)
Cell phone Coverage
There is basically NO signal for cell phones in most parts of the peninsula.
At KA BRU Beach we do have fast wireless internet.
The electricity on the Marau peninsula is 220V (the standard voltage in the rest of Brasil is 110V).
We are sorry, but furry friends are not permitted at KA BRU Beach.
All rooms at KA BRU Beach are non-smoking.
We love babies and kids
Neverthless we suggest them to be minimum 12 years of age to be staying at KA BRU Beach.
Leaving your car in Camamu
then getting here via boat transfer is often a good option but means that you don't have a car on the peninsula.
Any more questions? Do you need any travel assistance? We are here for you – contact us and we are happy to assist.
Located 120 km away from KA BRU Beach, Ilheus (IOS) is the closest airport and therefore the easiest option. From there you can take an airport transfer (2-3 hours) directly to KA BRU Beach.
We can arrange the airport transfer for you. A driver will meet you on arrival and brings you straight to our doorstep. Price on request.
A cheaper option would be to rent a car from Ilheus: this gives you added independence and flexibility to explore the area during your stay. But be aware that the roads up the peninsula of Maraú (40km) are unpaved. This can cause delays during periods of heavy rain or lack of maintenance. For this reason we always recommend visitors to rent a car, preferably a 4WD with good tires and road clearance.
The fastest, most luxurious and scenic way to reach us is by private air transfer, directly to KA BRU Beach Boutique Hotel. Upon your arrival in Salvador, a private helicopter will be waiting for you. Professional staff will take care of your needs and luggage. The flight takes approximately 45 minutes. Please contact us one week prior to your arrival. We will be happy to check the availability and a quote for you.
Coming from Ilheus, head north on the BA 001 direction Itacaré. Just before arriving in Itacaré there is a roundabout where you have to turn left and to follow the signs for "Camamu" and "Salvador via Ferry Boat". After approximately 10 kms (25 min before Camamu) you will reach another roundabout, where you have to turn right onto the gravel road BR 030 following the direction to Maraú. Follow the KA BRU Beach signs for 44km!
