Canavieiras Things to Do
Very nice harbor front with something as 20 colored colonial houses. Every second is a restaurant or bar.Related to:

Street vendors: Acarajé
Although there are several nice restaurants scattered throughout the town and along the docks, your best eating experience should be on the street. The local residents buy a piece of fried bread with shrimp stuffing from one of several vendors cooking on the street.
My favorite vendor is a woman working in front of the Assembly of God church by the stoplight. Her acarajé is inexpensive.Add to your Trip Planner
Canavieiras Off The Beaten Path
Already off the Beaten Path
If youve made it to Canes you are already off the beaten path and even if you engage in some of the tourist activities (marlin fishing, for example) you are visiting an area most tourists dont see.
I prefer to take water and snacks in a small backpack and see nature. The island of Atalaia, only about a kilometer from the town, is a great place to visit.Related to:

Hike the Island of Atalaia
If youve made it to Canavieiras you are already off the beaten path. Tourists usually just go from Rio to Salvador, occassionally stopping in Ilheus but rarely taking the road south to the somewhat isolated town of Canes.
If you make it this far there are several things to do. Surfing on Praia Costa, fishing for blue marlin, or boating along some of the rivers are normal tourist activities. I prefer to fill my pack with a water bottle and a few snacks and hike the areas that rarely are seen. The island of Atalaia, just a kilometer from downtown, is where the town residents escape to.Add to your Trip Planner
