Beaches > Urban
The beaches in the center of Ilhéus such as Praia da Avenida Soares Lopes (near Cathedral) and the Praia do Cristo beach are lacking good infrastructure for visitors. There is only a cabana at the beginning of the Praia do Cristo beach alongside the river: Cabana Badaró, where you can also rent canoes. The beaches Praia do Malhado, Praia do Marciano and Praia da Barra are popular amongst residents of nearby neighborhoods. There are some beachfront cabins here.
2 Km south from the centre. Apart from the entrance, the most beautiful urban beach in Ilhéus is undoubtedly the Praia da Concha beach with clear water and natural pools among the rocks of the Morro de Pernambuco.
Centre. The main entrance of the Praia da Avenida beach (Avenida Soares Lopes) is located next to the cathedral in the city center. There are no cabanas here.
10 Km north from the centre. A beach with a simple structure and few cabana options. Access via a pedestrian bridge and the road across the bridge to the north coast.
Centre. Beach at the mouth of the Rio Cachoeira river, with the statue of Christ, and the Badaró cabana. The beach has relatively calm waters and is busy during the weekend and summer.
2,7 Km north from the centre. The Praia do Malhado beach (Litorânea Avenue North) doesn't have a good structure for the visitor and is not considered good for bathing.
3,4 Km north from the centre. The Marciano beach is a beach with a simple but cozy structure. Cabanas and tables in the shadows of coconut trees and a wide beach for everyone.
4,1 Km north from the centre. Located at the mouth of the Rio Almada river, the Boca da Barra beach has several cabanas in the shadows of the coconut trees.
3,2 Km south from the centre. The Maramata beach, at the foot of the Morro de Pernambuco, became a less attractive place due to the start of construction of the new bridge.
