Description

A remote peninsula off the coast of Brazila, Corumbau's name means "distant place." Living up to its name, its secluded nature makes it slightly more difficult to get to, but worth it for everyone who gets there. Adding to the relaxed feel is the fact that there are only a couple of small hotels in Corumbau so you'll never feel like you're surrounded by tourists. Pristine beaches line the coast as sparkling turquoise water laps at the shore. The coral reef barrier has helped isolate Corumbau over the years and now provides visitors with stunning snorkeling opportunities. Whether you come on a romantic honeymoon or on a family vacation, you'll feel like you're the only ones to have discovered this isolated coastal town.

Its crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches make Corumbau a paradise worth exploring, while its location within the region of Bahia makes it perfect for further exploration.
