Average time to visit

Temperatures in Bahia vary little from month to month and it's warm all year round, with average highs hovering around 30°C. April to July is the wettest season (though it can rain at any time) and June to September bring slightly cooler evenings. Salvador goes mad during Carnival (February or March depending on the year) - more than 2 million party-goers hit the streets for a colourful riot of dancing and drinking - expect prices to hike and availability to fall dramatically.

Insider's View

We really recommend asking the team at the hotel to provide towels, chairs and umbrellas on the beach for you. You can sit for hours with a cold drink on the long white sandy beach in front of the hotel.

To start planning your holiday to Tutabel


Located in Trancoso, a quietly bohemian and stylish Brazilian beach town, Tutabel sits next to the sprawling beaches and turquoise water that define Bahia. This is the perfect place to enjoy some of Brazil's best beaches in luxuriously laidback style.

Enjoy one of the most untouched areas of Brazil's stunning coastline at Pousada Tutabel in Trancoso, as its bohemian style and relaxed atmosphere invite you to fully relax. This is Bahia at its most charming, and this chic property is the perfect place to escape to, with nothing but nature surrounding it. The sprawling gardens and open spaces here offer plenty of privacy in a completely peaceful setting, and are the only thing separating the pousada from the golden sands beyond.

The pousada itself boasts 16 individually designed suites, decorated in traditional beach style with neutral decor and splashes of corals, blues and pinks. Large floor to ceiling windows open up to create a feeling of space and allow in plenty of light, whilst four poster beds encourage a restful night's sleep and create an elegant atmosphere. There are plenty of shared areas including an ocean front pool and outdoor seating which are perfect for relaxation.

As one of the only properties in the area to offer direct beach access, Tutabel is a great base for ocean adventures or simply sunbathing, and guests can also enjoy kayaking along the Trancoso river, horse riding on the beach and even capoeira lessons. A number of trails surround the property where you can embark on scenic walks, discovering unique flora and fauna species before stumbling upon a picnic which has been set up by the staff at the pousada. Bikes are also available to explore the trails and beyond. Whether you want to simply unwind or enjoy an active beach break, pousada Tutabel offers the best of both worlds.

Although the hotel is located just outside of Trancoso and a 15 minute taxi ride from the Quadrado. It has a lovely long stretch of wild beach at its doorstep and you can hear the waves from the rooms at night. It is a lovely option for those wanting to visit the utterly unspoilt and remote beaches of the North-East of Brazil.
