Amazing Resorts in the Peninsula de Marau

Looking for amazing resorts in the Peninsula de Marau? Peninsula de Marau is one of the rare places on the coast of Brazil which are still untouched. The peninsula is more than 40 km long and is full of deserted beaches, lakes, mangroves, natural swimming pools, waterfalls, rivers, forest and wild life. This is definitely an unique place in Brazil.

The white sand beaches, surrounded by the crystal clear water and by the long palm trees, make Marau the perfect destination at any time of the year. The corals are also a highlight, and anyone visiting the peninsula can’t miss snorkeling and diving in the region.

Its isolated location has guaranteed the local nature’s fully preservation. There are so many hidden beaches in Marau, that you will often feel like you are on a private island. Take a look at the Most Amazing Beaches in Brazil or on Pinterest here.

    Having a love of travel myself and have visited several beach locations!  I really liked the layout of the website!  It is very organized with beautiful pictures that make you want to read the article.  It’s easy to read and has great pictures to go along with the articles!  I am going to look into going to some of those locations!

    You have once again introduced us to a new tropical paradise.  I love the drone footage in all your posts, it gives us a great idea of what each place has to offer.  I would visit Cassange Beach for its pristine nature as well as the freshwater pools.  I would definitely stay at the Vila Barracuda Boutique Hotel because it’s right in the middle of town and close to the beach.  Thank you for posting!

    When I started reading this, I thought Marau was in Portugal, not Brazil. But then I realized they share the same language lol.

    I have a friend that lives in Sao Paulo. I wonder how far it is from Marau? Brazil is a huge country!

    All of the beaches look amazing! My favorite is Ponto do Muta Beach. It sounds like the kind of place I like. No people, just me and my company. I try to avoid touristy places as much as I can.

    Thanks for sharing. I will add this to my travel bucket list.

      Brazil is a huge country with a lot of diversity.  Speaking of big, it’s a good 25 hr. drive from San Paulo to Peninsula Marau!  A flight might be better, unless you want the road trip.

    The Peninsula de Marau sounds very much off the beaten track of beaches with high-rise hotels and villa stretches. It does seem to have a super laid back charm with amazing beaches like Taipu de Fora and Saquaira. To be honest, if I am in superchillaxation mode then Marau is spot on however with kids I would need more activities in and around. My wife certainly but my daughters won’t be going on any Chapada Diamantina Trekking Expedition. The scuba and snorkeling however are certainly winners. I will now certainly take a closer look at Marau as I had never heard about it.

    Yum Brazil when it’s cold in Australia! It sounds like heaven to me and what a beautiful coastline and beachfront in your opening picture. I truly am a beach bunny and could happily follow summer around the world as long as there is a beach nearby.

    Taipu de Foro beach will be my first stop for some snorkeling, I just love looking at coral and fish. Then a trekking expedition into Bahia to really feel the country. Thanks for this amazing review.

      Does it get cold in Australia LOL.  I live in Florida, and yes it does get cold here.  Anything under 70 degrees feels pretty darn chilly.  Thanks for taking the time to leave me comments.

    Long time ago when I had to choose a destination, far west or far east, I’ve chosen east. And actually I was thinking of going to Brazil, so now after the reading of this lovely article, description of that beautiful coastline, I would definitely choose far west (for me, as a European). Since I love Brazilian music, I love Portuguese language, now I am sure where is my next destination! Thank you for sharing!

    The weather is cold here now, it would be good to go out to sea, but it’s cold there too.
    A place with a warm and great climate is far from me, but I would like even more.
    Marau Peninsula, what a splendid place but very far from me.
    Beaches of 40 km, we do not have such a thing in Romania.
    It is a wild place at sea but it is small, small compared to the Marau Peninsula.
    .People would be such an outlet for me.

    As we are heading towards winter and cold weather where I live, I would love to be escaping to a warm climate and have a beach holiday. Peninsula de Marau sounds like the perfect destination with its 40 km of deserted beaches, waterfalls, mangroves, natural swimming pools and more. Being able to combine days on the beach with doing trekking and maybe a private trip with Ivan Bahia through Chapada Diamantina National Park, sounds like bliss to me.

      Yes, pure bliss !  I live in an area where we do not get any cold weather, well it is dipping down into the low 70s right now, but that is about as low as it will get.  So, I just like to visit places with unique culture, history, good food, and of course amazing beaches.  You will get that in the Peninsula de Marau.

    The Peninsula de Marau sounds like the kind of place I would love to live at. Beaches, lakes, natural swimming pools, waterfalls, and forests. I bet it’s teeming with all kinds of birds and bird sounds as well. 

    I mean, 82°F sounds like my kind of temperature. And I bet it’s most crowded between Christmas and New Year since some people tend to look for a warm retreat during that time. Personally, I would be most down for a surf at the Saquaira Beach. But the reef at Taipu de Foro Beach sounds incredible as well. It must be really nice if it’s top 10 in Brazil. 

    Also, I genuinely appreciate that look at the restaurants. 🙂

    I have read about these 40 km long deserted beaches. A friend of mine has been excited about going there to picture these breathtaking landscapes. We have been in the photography business for years, and we know that high-quality pictures of that area can pay off. Your post has encouraged me to start planning our trip. Thank you!
