Maraú Penninsula

Outside of the traditional Bahia touristic circuit, Marau Peninsula, located between Salvador and Ilh‚us, is still preserved and unknown. The Peninsula, that spread out on the north way, with the Atlantic Ocean by one side and the Camamu Bay on the other, presents desert beaches and lagoons in its inside. Itïs a perfect place to relax and see wild natural landscapes. Great option for beach relaxation and/or for honeymooners. Good to combine with Salvador and Chapada Diamantina.

Salvador

Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos - Holy Savior of All Saints Bay - is the original capital of Brazil (until 1763) and is one of the country's oldest cities. It is here where Vinicius de Moraes and Sergio Mendes grew up which enabled them to capture the essence of Brazil through their songs.

You will explore Salvador's rich history by observing the many churches and numerous world heritage sites recognized by UNESCO during your stay.

Then, we reach the Lighthouse Hill´s top (or Taipu de Fora Hill) to enjoy a wonderful view. Afterwards, departure by car to Taipu de Fora beach, with huge natural pools that are formed at low tide between the coral reefs. With crystal clear waters and rich submarine fauna, it is an excellent place for snorkeling and underwater observation.

BARRA GRANDE AND PONTA DO MUTÁ - 4 to 5 hours

In the afternoon we leave towards the north of Península de Maraú (15km), at Praia dos Coqueiros. From this point, a short walk by the beach takes you to Ponta do Mutá, which is the northeast point of the Peninsula, facing the ocean. There are beautiful rocks that rise above-water. A lighthouse marks the entrance of the bay where a Portuguese fort existed in the past. After 40 minutes we arrive at Barra Grande pier with clear sand and calm water. The village has a very calm and relaxed atmosphere and a beautiful natural setting that makes any visitor enthralled. In the village, you will cross sand floor, flower gardens and fruit trees. We will finish the day at Baía de Camamu and enjoy its fantastic sunset.

JOURNEY IN TIME - 3 to 4 hours

Departing from the "Porto do Jobel" by boat you will initiate the "journey in time" on the "Tanque Island". Walking on a trail through the rain forest, cultivated land and other kinds of vegetation, you will cross over the island passing by a hill with a fascinating view over the bay and native settlements with their typical houses, crowned with giant TV antennas. During the trail you will learn more about the way people live here in this remote area, and discover how they transform the manioc roots into the delicious Manioc Flower, an ancient Indian tradition. Soon you will question yourself if all these impressions are real and wonder how places like these can exist. Arriving on the other side, you will cross over the "Maraú River" by boat to the "Tubarão Island" and visit the traditional dendê-plantation from Sr. Eliseu. His very simple stone mill is still moved by a donkey to squeeze out the famous dendê oil from the little red brown dendê nuts. With some luck he just harvested some nuts and you can see the production of this delicious reddish coloured oil used for frying and cooking the most traditional meals of Bahia. The boat will bring you back to the Sky River from where you will glide in a canoe through the amazing scenery offered by the mangroves and its roots in the "Cassange River". From the end of the river a 15 minute walk will bring us to the top of the "Morro da Bela Vista" where you can enjoy the most beautiful panoramic view from the "Maraú Península". In the shadow of the wooden bar you can appreciate fresh coconut water and relax while you let your eyes glimpse towards the ocean. For sure, it won't be easy for you to leave this place. A refreshing swim in the ocean waiting for you at your lodge might help to bring you into movement again.

ISLANDS OF THE BAY - 5 to 6 hours

The northern part of the bay also reserves some very special beauties to be discovered. Hopping from island to island, you will discover traditional fishermen villages on small islands in a wonderfully peaceful location like "Sapinho", "Taipu" or "Goio" with its paradisaical beaches and "Ilha da Pedra Furada", the most beautiful mini island of the bay. At low tide, surrounded by several little beaches, its rocks and green vegetation reach out into the blue sky. Joined by a natural arch the two parts of the little island offer another little surprise, which gave the island its name. On the other side of the bay is the village of Cajaiba where its inhabitants have specialized themselves in building boats. Real, handmade massive wooden boats, the way they used to be centuries ago, with one two or three big masts but no engineers or plants. As most of the masters still are illiterate their knowledge is passed on from generation to generation just by practicing their craftsmanship. Soon you will feel the wish to stay forever, especially after tasting a fresh seafood meal prepared by a native fishermen and his wife, sitting in the shadow of a "Jambo" tree on the "Sapinho Island", surrounded by the sea.
