Virgin beach on the peninsula of Marau, near Itacaré (more available)

(400 m beach; 640000 m² )

When the road from Ilheus to Itacaré was opened, less than 10 years ago, price levels exploded. Today, land in Itacaré is amongst the most expensive of the Brazilian coast.

Yet, one last remaining stretch of virgin beaches is found on the peninsula of Marau. This stretches from Itacaré to Barra Grande, via the famous 'Taipus de Fora'.

Access from Itacaré is difficult. Or rather, it's expensive; only 4x4's get across the sandy roads; yet exactly because of this it is very popular with the rich who can afford to fly in by helicopter or the little planes from Salvador. AeroStar operates a little plane, 5 days out of seven, that makes the short trip from Salvador via Morro de Sao Paolo to Barra Grande.

On the west side, the peninsula creates the third largest bay in Brazil, a great sailing area. On the east side, the snorkeling beaches of Taipus are quite famous. The bay is a departure point for the sports fishing boats that go for the game fishing grounds, some 40km off the coast.

On the east side, several lakes, close to the beach, add further attraction. The beach in Taipus de Fora, where coral reefs create natural swimming pools filled with coloured fish, is one of Brazil's most sought-after beaches and VIPs like Duda Mendonça have impressive mansions on this beach.

Today, the area could be developed but only for an exclusive clientèle that would fly in via the island-hopping service of AeroStar (approx. 2x 20 minutes of flying; flights on 5 days out of 7). (some $80 one way.)

There are small villages nearby that provide basic services and the town of Barra Grande, some 30km north, offers a more complete range.
