  • Can be a matter of tide, but I found the beach very angry and especially dangerous to children. Isn't that the beauty and warm waters that we think represents the Northeast

  • Clean beach, with Palm trees, a paradise. We stayed at the Cana Brava resort and we had the privilege to be on this beach.

  • I did my morning walks during 7 days for that beach!!! I heard from everyone to be careful with your belongings (watches, cell phones and such) but I didn't find as much risk not!!! The locals are very friendly and helpful!! There's just not any structure of tents outside the area of hotels!

Where to stay in Ilheus

Thanks to the city's well-developed tourist infrastructure, you won't have any trouble finding accommodations in Ilheus. For a luxurious experience, stay in a resort or eco-lodge on the seashore, where you'll have easy beach access and a relaxed atmosphere. You can experience beach proximity at a fraction of the price by booking a private bungalow or beachside cabin. There's no better way to get a feel for the city's history, however, then by looking away from the center and staying on a cacao plantation in the nearby hills, where you'll be able to see how the "chocolate tree" is grown and harvested.
