Description: Ilheus is a small town about 400Km south of Salvador and 315 Km north of Porto Seguro where the local coastline is broken up by 5 rivers and a series of bays, lagoons and waterways. The heart of the city is on a hill that overlooks one of the largest and best beaches in Bahia. It is between hills, beach and a small harbour at the mouth of the Cachoeira River. It dates back to the early 1500's and inspite of many modern buildings there still remains plenty of the past for the tourist to expolore before heading to the beaches. It is the birthplace of Amado one of the best-known of the Brazilian authors. If you are not familiar with his novel Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon you will be, seems most of the bars, hotels and restaraunts are named after it.
