The travel beetween Trancoso and Espelho Beach is amazing... and the first view of Espelho Beach is unforgettable. Spend a day at Espelho Beach is an amazing experience.

We took a day trip from Trancoso to Espelho and had a very relaxing time. The drive from Trancoso can take at least 45 minutes depending on the roads (they get bumpy so make sure you have a good driver)! Once there, you can unwind, walk the tranquil beach, snorkel, eat delicious seafood, and drink caipirinhas! If you like exploring... More

Lovely remote beach! Stayed in Trancoso but did a day-trip to Espelho. Rented a car locally as they are fitted for the VERY bumpy dirt road to get there. Had lunch at a 3 table restaurant that only the referrals get to eat there, as there's no signs. Food was delicious, vegetarian and seafood, rustic Thai, Indian fusion.

Locals hyped up this beach quite a bit, saying the surface of the water truly looked like glass and "mirrored" the sky. My friends and I had some time to spare, so we drove out and spent a few hours just swimming and hanging out. The water is clear and calm, but it did not look especially glassy when we... More

Interesting car drive down a very bumpy road but we arrived to find a lovely rustic beach.. Not quite as amazing as I was expecting but beautiful nonetheless and worth a day trip

Stunning beach, great views. I particularly enjoyed relaxing at divino's for the day - really peaceful and away from the crowds and excellent food as well. The road there is certainly part of the experience...

Wow! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!! Peaceful. Remote , but still has all that you could need. Not a night club type spot so plan more for romance, family, and/or pure relaxation.

Well I do like the beach it IS very nice. Not a lot nicer than other beaches in Bahia, but still very nice. Great for swimming, since the outer reefs takes care of the otherwise heavy waves. Prices are close to ridiculous - like a 125R$ for a moqueca.... come on....! The road there was definitely an experience in a... More

This beach has such variety of landscape, especially walking toward the north, you'll sometimes feel like you are on another planet.
