About Trancoso

Trancoso, like much of the southern coast of Bahia, has a geography marked by cliffs and plateaus very close to the coast, beaches with reefs, and coconut trees growing on the clear sand. Similar in style, although as a much smaller village, than neighboring Arraial d'Ajuda, Trancoso stands out as a destination that offers tranquility and good lodging and gastronomic options.

Trancoso is located on the so-called discovery coast, in the south of the state of Bahia and only 30 kilometers from Porto Seguro, which is its main access airport.

The beaches extend from the border with Taípe beach in Arraial d'Ajuda until almost reaching Caraíva, passing by the famous Praia do Espelho. The most accessible from the village of Trancoso are the ones that go from Rio da Barra beach (north of the village) to Itapororoca.
