Peninsula Maraú

Brazil Travel / Mata Atlântica – The Peninsula Maraú Environmental Protection Area is a sustainable use conservation unit of the Mata Atlântica Biosphere Reserve, on the south coast of Bahia State. The peninsula lies at the so-called Dende coast, 200 km south of Salvador, 100 km north of Ilheus and 30 km from Itacaré.

The peninsula of Maraú separates the Atlantic Ocean in the east from the Maraú River and the Camamu Bay, in the west. This conservation unit protects a large number of coastal Atlantic Rainforest ecosystems such as mangrove, restinga and tropical rainforest. There still exist several traditional fishing villages on Maraú, such as Taipu de Dentro, Campinho (west) or Algodões and Saquaíra (east) – Ecotravel & Tours / Brazil.
