Cristo Beach, Ilheus

#9 of 19 in Outdoors in Ilheus
Beach Nature / Park
A statue of the Redeeming Christ watches over Cristo Beach, a popular and vibrant beach fringed by grass and dark, lush vegetation. This beach is very much a place to be seen, and to be seen doing things; there are numerous activities on offer, including kayaking, jet-skiing, and Hobie Cat sailing, all of which make Cristo Beach an ideal location for the more adventurous beach-goer.

  • Small, quiet beach, with beautiful view and possibility of kayaking and other water sports

  • The site has an image of Christ in large size, but it's not a work of art, wants to justify the trip. Place a little wilderness, we were concerned with the frequency. The landscape is beautiful, even but nothing more than that. Don't bother going.

  • The beach of the Christ despite being very beautiful, quiet and central, not so good at certain times of the weekend. How is a predominantly freshwater Beach, at the meeting of the River with the sea, is propitious to practice stand up, kayaking and sailing. Its central location just attracting regulars of questionable taste that fills up their sands with tents and styrofoam, leaving trash behind, not to mention the very high volume of cars. For those who want to have some peace of mind, I advise you go in the morning, because the environment is pretty heavy.

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.
