To start planning your vacation to Etnia Clube de Mar


Facing Itapororoca Beach, Etnia Clube de Mar features five authentically decorated Brazilian beach bungalows, an outdoor pool and hot tub. Literally a stone’s throw from the sea, it becomes the second Etnia hotel in the Trancoso region offering the same high quality service and facilities but unlike the village of Trancoso itself and Pousada Etnia, which is set up on a cliff, Etnia Clube de Mar has a beach front location.

The chic, spacious bungalows are set on two floors and feature and outside patio area, living room, bedroom and kitchen. Three of the bungalows have two bedrooms - ideal for families. All feature an LCD cable TV, minibar, free Wi-Fi and room service.


Etnia Clube de Mar has five individual beach bungalows - Praia de Itaquena and Praia do Espelho with one bedroom and Rio Verde, Rio de Barra and Quadrado with two bedrooms.


Children are welcome to come and stay at the hotel, and babysitting can be arranged upon request, but there are no specific facilities or interconnecting rooms.


Etnia Clube de Mar has a wonderful beach lounge and a superb bar and restaurant. The hotel does not have a pool however guests can use the pool up at Etnia Pousada in Trancoso village.


Relax on the beach, soak up the laid-back atmosphere, excursions to nearby beaches such as Praia do Espelho & Praia de Caraiva, visit the Quadrado in Trancoso, golf at the nearby Terra Vista Golf Course, kayaking, boat and helicopter tours and trekking.

Location & Directions

Trancoso, Brazil

Etnia Clube de Mar is located on a private estate, just 2km from Trancoso village, on the coast of Bahia.

When to go

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 Carnaval (February or March depending on the year) - more than 2 million party-goers hit the streets for a colorful riot of dancing and drinking - expect prices to hike and availability to fall dramatically.
