“Best place in Barra Grande.”
Reviewed 6 July 2010

After 3 delicious days we are shure this is THE place. Very nice winter weather, 27C sunny days. Some rain at night.
Debora the owner is very helpful.
Dont miss the shrimps and palm heart at Tapera Restaurant.
Free wifi looking at the sea...
Best way to get here is from Ilheus, then 90 minutes with a taxi driver recomended by the hotel, then 90 minutes on a boat and 200 meters walking on the sand.

Reviewed 24 January 2009

We arrived in Barra Grande by car driving from Trancoso, crossing Itacare and after a VERY BUMBY dirt road. The first night we spend in Pousada Tamarindo, but next day we found Pousada Ponta do Muta and fell in love with it

The service is very good, que bedrooms cozy and free wi-fi. The best of all the garden go all the way to the beach. The break fast is complete and the manager can help you booking a boat trip to the bay or a car to Taipus de Fora beach.

Very recommented pousada!

Reviewed 21 December 2007

This is a little piece of paradise at only 30 mins flying time from Salvador via Morro de Sao Paulo. Or you can come overland from Salvador by boat,bus and boat taking a full day.

The Marau peninsula is a gorgeous stretch of protected coastline with beaches to the calm waters of Camamu bay and kilometres of beaches on the wilder ocean side.

Barra Grande is a small village with sand roads,exuberant vegetation,friendly people and a cute little centre full of bars and restaurants with a really nice atmosphere in the evening.

I stayed at the Pousada Ponta do Muta, the best place in BG.The pousada has 10 rooms and a reception building set in gorgeous garden with direct beach access. My room was extremely comfortable and even included an umbrella...being the tropics it does rain!

The team at the Pousada are a real delight...Fabiana, Andrea, Mareluz... Fabiana speaks great English. The beach in front of the hotel is beautiful....ideal swimming waters.If your feeling fit you can walk all the way down the coast to Taipu and back stopping at bars along the way for an agua de coco or something stronger!

The pousada offers a splendid breakfast, and cake and coffee in the afternoon. They'll go out of their way to show you all the good places to go.

Food wise I ate splendidly, most particularly at Donanas next door to the Pousada where Aninha serves the most wonderful Bahian cuisine.The restaurant is a real romantic spot. Go with someone you love,listen to the tropical sounds,look at the stars,drink a few caipirinhas,eat the most fabulous moqueca and be soothed by Aninhas great collection of blues and jazz.

Barra Grande is a place to go and relax...disconnect from the nonsense of the world...smell the flowers,sip an exotic suco at Roselanges...and, if you must ,check your e mails at the internet cafe.

Go before the reaper knocks on your door.
