Welcome to Itaúnas

Near the Bahia border 270km north of Vitória, Itaúnas is one of those rare places that manages to retain a low-key ‘end of the road’ feel despite the intermittent barrage of tourists. Many visitors fall under the town’s easygoing spell and end up staying longer than they expected.

More than fifty years ago, sand dunes engulfed the original village of Itaúnas, which was set about 1km closer to the ocean than it is now – these days the old church tower and other ruins lie completely buried in sand, marked only by an interpretive sign.
