Ilha de Comandatuba - Bahia
The beautiful Comandatuba Island keeps a wealth of Brazilian fauna and flora throughout its stretch. The tours allow nice moments for being in touch with the well preserved Nature in this paradise. Activities in the island range from a simple and fulfilling rest under a coconut tree shade to an exciting golf match. For those who enjoy water activities, it is possible to adventure on high sea or canal fishing, around the island, or to experience the “adrenalin” of riding on a jet-ski amidst the wonderful landscape.
At the tours, guided by qualified staff, guests get information on the amazing local ecosystem. There are some unmissable tours, such as the walk through the suspension bridges at the Una Ecologic Park and the Lama Negra Safari. Don’t miss the marsh, the Dona Vida farm, and a bit more about baiana culture in the cities of Ilhéus and Canavieiras, with their old mansions.
Built between the ocean and the marsh, inaugurated in July 2000, the Comandatuba Island Ocean Course is one of the main and better kept golf resorts in the Country. Ocean Course has 18 holes and four difficulty levels, defined by the “tees” (exits from each hole), three for men: distance varies between 5,712 and 6,928 yards, which makes it suitable for professionals and accessible for those new to the sport. Visit the Comandatuba Ocean Course on a motorized car, learning more about the sport in a beautiful landscape.
