The Brazilian city of Ilhéus sits on the banks of the Cachoeira and Almada Rivers, and is known for its fine colonial architecture and beaches, like the palm-tree-lined Millionaires Beach, with its parade of delicious food stalls.

Ilhéus’ beaches each have their own unique landscape and history: the enormous waves of Back Door Beach attract surfers and other water sports enthusiasts; the stunning white sands of Acuipe Beach, is ideal for walkers and sun bathers; a statue of Christ watches over central Christ Beach; and Praia da Avenida Beach offers views toward the imposing spires of St. Sebastian Cathedral.  

Birthplace to the famous Brazilian novelist, Jorge Amado, Ilhéus is one of north-east Brazil’s most popular and important tourist destinations – the town’s fame comes from its history as a prosperous cocoa port. While there are many traditional Portuguese buildings, the bright, early-20th-century architecture and oddly angled streets, make Ilhéus a joyous, vibrant city to explore.
