If you are in the area of Porto Seguro and Trancoso, a visit to Caraiva is a must. This little town is just accessible by a boat, and cars are not allowed. The beach is beautiful with little restaurants in the town.

Another magical place in Bahia. Very nice, deserted beach. Beautiful and far from anything else, a very peaceful place.

I could stay here forever. The only downside is the food, since there aren't many options if you're not willing to go search for a restaurant.
