Barra Grande Beach, Marau

4.5
#2 of 6 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. Put Barra Grande Beach into our Marau tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    There are some small boats around this beach and therefore others are better for sunbathing and swimming. Nevertheless we went here a few times for strolling and playing with the boys.  more »

    Excellent for hiking and bathing in the sea. The beach remains practically clean, waves off weak and stays in the village of Barra Grande. There are options with waves too, when away from the village. The however is that some bars, restaurants, guesthouses and houses invaded the beach, taking part in this. At high tide, we are obliged to "invade" these spaces. A Feather (July/2017). In the year of 2004, there were no such invasions.

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.
