Sul Beach, Ilheus

(280+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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.
