“Amazing for 1-2 weeks detox”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

This is an amazing place, the small village offers you good typical food at a reasonable price. The beaches are fantastic and Cassange Lagoon is one of the best places to visit in there. The environment is very relaxed. There are surfing, All-Terrain Vehicle (quadriciclo) for rental and I would highly recommend it. Take a long walk in the beaches during sunset and you will fall in love for Barra Grande.

“Amazing destination to spend 1 or 2 weeks relaxing and enjoying all its beauty and activities!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

My girlfriend and I just got back from 2 week vacation in Barra Grande. We had an amazing time with a perfect mix of peacefulness and outdoor activities to do. The spend days diving its natural reef pools, walking in solitude, surfing, practicing stand-up, paddling, etc... the food is amazing and the people super welcoming. It is one of those spots in Brazil (and the world that you can still leave your belongings unwatched in the beach for hours and nothing goes missing!)
We stayed at 3 different Pousadas (B&B) the fisrt one was Fruta Pao, it is in-town really nice place and good price. Then Bamboo Dorado in Taipus de Fora beach, a really beautiful minimalist design and then back in town at Pousada Mediterraneo just by the sea. Perfect!
If you are not a crowd lover, avoid January and February which is high season. Those months, come to Bariloche! ;-)

I have been at Barra Grande beach for business (unfortunately, it´s true! But I will come back soon for vacation!!!), in 2011, november. The beach has a perfect beauty! To arrive there, you can take a taxi from Ilheus airport to Camamu village (100 km), and take a speed-boat from Camamu village to Barra Grande beach, that takes a 20 minutes trip. After 15 minutes in the boat, you´ll can see the seacoast with palm trees line, white sand and clear sea water! How can you resist this?!? Could it be better?!? Yes, when you find a club beach that named "O Deck - restaurante, festa e lounge" ("restaurant", "party" and "lounge") to relax and enjoy your day in that fantastic beach! Enjoy this paradise on earth! Good luck!
