The coastline of Ilheus, also known as the Cocoa Coast, has almost 100 kilometers of white sandy beaches. The fun of the beaches is great; You can find crowded beaches with many huts and accommodation options right in the south of Ilheus while the north coast beaches are less developed and semi-deserted. The beaches in the center of Ilheus are the only lacking a good structure. For the coast surfers it offers good waves at Backdoor Beach (south).
