Sul Beach, Ilheus

4.2
#2 of 19 in Parks in Ilheus
Noted for a thick field of coconut trees and traces of the native rainforest, Sul Beach is located just 4 kilometers (2.5 mi) from the downtown area. Along its length you can find a number of food stalls, most of which specialize in the typical regional dishes. Enjoy snorkeling and surfing here, or take a long swim along a stretch of reefs that lead to a natural pool with a sandy bottom. This coast has had its share of intense activity through the centuries, including attacks from French pirates in the 16th century and, more recently, an onslaught of 77,000 tourists. Many spots along the coast do offer complete quiet, surrounded by lush vegetation and calm blue waters.

    Many kilometers of beaches, clear and firm sand, bordered by Green Palm trees. Some stretches have lodges and tents. Despite the high waves, one of the most beautiful beaches of Brazil.

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.
