Barra Grande Beach, Marau

4.5
#2 of 7 in Things to do in Marau
Framed by coconut trees, this stretch of white sand and calm, warm ocean, is a perfect retreat from the stresses of every day. Somewhat unscathed by modern development, Barra Grande Beach has maintained its charm and offers you a taste of the simple life. You can sit for hours, sipping iced coconut water, or take a short walk along the beach where you will come to the Ponta da Mutá, the northeast point of the peninsula complete with a lighthouse. You will also find a range of activities available, from diving on the coral reef to paddle-boarding. The best restaurants are in town, and as you make your way there, you’ll notice the same easygoing atmosphere, and with streets covered in the sand, you won’t even feel like you have left the beach.

  • This place stands out for its calm waters, ideal for all children. But the big attraction is the magnificent sunset. Unique experience to enjoy and admire the beauties that nature offers.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever met, despite access being complicated. We flew up to Islanders, cab until Camamu and ferry to Barra Grande. The place is paradise, walk in the sand all the time. The site features hotels/hostels great and excellent restaurants. It is very safe and peaceful, in addition to be very pleasant climate. There are many excursions to be made, and may be by boat as drive or quadriciculo. We recommend.

Where to stay in Marau

Marau plays host to some truly exceptional lodging options, most with adjoining restaurants, including beachfront bungalows and luxury resorts. Budget options are available further inland but are limited and should be booked at least a few weeks in advance. Alternatively, visitors can take advantage of the picturesque surroundings and favorable climate by pitching a tent at one of the local campsites. These have a distinctly bohemian feel but come equipped with showers and a communal kitchen.
