Barra Grande Beach, Marau

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Good shake on the beach, plenty of bars, the night is pretty busy, has parts with good water for bathing, but not liked by the pier, the boats are very close, it's not very pleasant.

  • Good beach, but in front of where I was staying there is a great movement of barges, which makes the experience so relaxing. But still worth the visit.
