Last day in paradise in Maraú Peninsula, Brazil

Last day in paradise in Maraú Peninsula, Brazil

Last night we stayed up late talking to Nanana and Cacau the owners of the fabulous  Casa dos Arandis , but I can’t waste my last morning in paradise and am up  and awake at 5am to catch the predawn, dawn and sunrise. During this last 10 days we’ve had many days when it has rained overnight […]

Boat trip around Camamu bay & BiriBiri Caipirinhas in Maraú, Bahia

Boat trip around Camamu bay & BiriBiri Caipirinhas in Maraú, Bahia

There are sunrises and sunrises but nowhere have I seen one quite as amazing as this one, taken at 5.15am as I wake up in Casa Maralago (one of the houses which make up Fazenda Maison). It’s just one blaze of golden light with palm trees silhouetted against the sea. I’m already in seventh heaven […]

Taipu de Fora to Cassange, Maraú

Taipu de Fora to Cassange, Maraú

It’s Day 7 I know that much but I haven’t got a clue which day of the week it is. After a few days in Bahia you kind of forget things like that as you start slowing down and chilling and just forgetting the outside world. I’ve now been in Taipus de Fora 4 days […]

Chilling at Dreamland Bungalows, Maraú Peninsula, Bahia

One of the things I adore about Dreamland Bungalows is that not only is it right on the beach (with a fabulous beach bar) but that there are sea views from practically every suite. Not only that but all suites have verandas with chairs, table and functioning wi-fi so you can keep in touch (if […]

Day 3: Itacaré to Taipus de Fora, Maraú

Day 3: Itacaré to Taipus de Fora, Maraú

Not sure if the rain is over as my ground floor view as I awake is of tropical flowers rather than sea and sky but I decide to take a walk along the oral (waterfront) anyway. Itacaré has (fortunately for me) never become a beach resort of the Canoa Quebrada, Jericoacoara, Trancoso sort although the […]

Checking out the best places to stay in Itacaré: from Pousada Tãnara to Vila Barracuda

Checking out the best places to stay in Itacaré: from Pousada Tãnara to Vila Barracuda

Well, we were promised rain and rain it certainly did last night and again this morning. Torrential tropical rain like the sort you definitely don’t want to go out in! I don’t mind as I’ve been to Pousada Tãnara before but it’s not good for photo taking and of course it always means that the […]
