Ilhéus x Barra Grande – by car

Taking a flight to Ilhéus – Jorge Amado Airport (IOS) and renting a car to drive directly to Barra Grande is one of the best and fastest options to get to.

In addition to offering greater independence and flexibility for you to explore the region. Ilhéus Airport receives daily flights from the main capitals of Brazil and has car rental agencies available, such as: Localiza, Movida, Unidas and Hertz. The distance from the airport to Villa Kandui Maraú is 130 km. 85 km of this route is made by paved road until the junction with BR 030 and from this point, 45 km of dirt road, may be in good condition or not depending on the time of year. Although the road is dirt, it is often level and can be traveled by ordinary cars for most of the year.

During rainy periods, we recommend renting tall cars, preferably 4x4s to avoid inconvenience or delays. With the road in good condition, expect to take approximately 2h30 from the airport to Barra Grande.
