Nice to rest at the beach, good beach service and calm swimming and dive at natural reef poll. There are good waves too. It is important to know about the best time to the practice the surf and swimming/dive (low tide).

Taipus de Fora is one of the best kept secrets in Brazil, a beautiful lomg beach known for its natural rock pools which form at low tide. It's situated on the Atlantic Ocean side of the Peninsula de Maraú in Bahia, Brazil around 20 minutes drive south from the main town of Barra Grande. Most people come here to go... More

I enjoyed every aspect of this tour. A ride on Quad to Taipus de Fora, the life on the reef, the beach and the possibility of exploring the area which has good infrastructure.

Taipus is perfect for those who wants to rest and even for some surf. It is hard to get there, what prevents massive tourism

Brazil has so many great beaches but this is one of the best, we visited in August and the tides were fairly high. At low tide the natural rock pool was good for swimming, this was early in the morning during our stay. At high tide there were strong swells and a number of surfers were active. From the beach...

This beach stretched for kilometers and along the way you might find fishermen and a few other people, but you could truly have a large section all to yourself to build that castle or take a dip in the surf. No beach hawkers to be seen.

One has to be careful not to forget your own glasses, and to dive with the low tide. Otherwise it is very pleasurable and long lasting experience if you are minimally prepared

Beautiful destination for all people who love warm seas with many things to do and good food. Buddha Bar has excellent service and very good food. Great calm hidden place in Brazil. Bambu Dorado Pousada is such a cool place to spend the nights. Avoid the Brazilian Holidays because it should get crowded then...

Get tide tips with the locals to make sure you are close to the reef at the right time and you can practically walk to the reef from the beach. Snorkel rental is widely available and there is also a night dive option which is highly recommended. Walking or cycling from Barra grande beach to Taipus the fora (aprox. 10Km)... More

This beach hás a very special feature: besides the white sand, the long shadows provided by the coconut trees, there is this clear and blue sea, with a coral reef close enough to take children in thei first snorkel dive.
