Marau in Mayrahú means sunlight at dawn.
It was an indigenous tribe discovered in 1705 by Italian Capuchin Friars and today it is the host city for one of the most beautiful and untouched regions of Brazil: the Marau Peninsula. Located south of Bahia, in the Dende Coast, the peninsula is surrounded by the bay on one side and 50 km of pristine beaches on the other.
Taipu de Fora is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Marau Peninsula. It has coral formations that host Brazil’s greatest natural pool. Marauba is located 1500m north of this pool.
