I've often heard it said that the beaches in this corner of Brazil are some of the most beautiful in the country. And it is indeed true to say that at Barra Grande, located on the Maraú Peninsula, the scenery is magnificent. To paint a picture for you, imagine a series of white sandy, coconut palm fringed beaches, rivers, and little corners of paradise ideal for lovers of peaceful, zen-like bathing experiences.
Barra's big advantage – in addition to its idyllic setting – is its incomparable atmosphere: the village is far from the hustle and bustle of Bahia's main tourist sites and retains its traditional authenticity. With capoiera on the beach, menus completely based on seafood, and evenings spent drinking caipirinha, there is no doubt at all: this is a place where you can really get away from it all and relax!
There are numerous activities available for you to do in the surrounding area. Be sure to make an excursion to the peninsula's most famous beach, Taipu de Fora, with its natural pools. It lies less than 10 km from Barra Grande. Though more touristy than the other beaches, it is still magnificent! Barra Grande really is the perfect destination for anyone dreaming of a relaxing getaway.
