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.

The Beaches of the Peninsula de Marau
Ponto do Muta Beach
Ponta do Muta Beach is the go-to spot to see the sunset on the Peninsula de Marau. There are some really cool bars here, with great music and a chill atmosphere to relax. Mingle here without a care in the world, except for a mutual desire to have fun and catch the perfect sunset!
Just below Saquaira sits beautiful Algodoes Beach. The beach here is more protected in its own bay, with wide, white sand beaches and natural pools at low tide. The neighborhood is charming without a lot of commerce, with an eclectic mix of Brazilians and foreigners with vacation homes… and many who came to stay!
Cassange Beach is pristine and nearly uninhabited. Just behind the beach is the Lagoa do Cassange (Cassange Lake), a picturesque, fresh water playground perfect for paddling and enjoying the sunset. This part of the Marau Peninsula is for nature lovers, with few amenities.
Saquaira Beach is roughly the halfway point along the Marau Peninsula. It is the only real town that you’ll see along the dirt highway if you happen to be driving. Saquaira is small and charming town of mostly natives, with all the basic stores and conveniences. The beach here has more waves with some decent surf, with some beautiful and upscale resort properties.
Taipu de Foro Beach
Taipu de Fora Beach is by far the single most visited beach on the peninsula ever since it made its way onto the list of the top 10 beaches in Brazil. The reef formations here create spectacular environment for snorkeling and SCUBA diving. Natural pools are formed at low tide, giving the impression that you are inside of a living aquarium of crystalline water, full of tropical fish, corals and other marine life.
