Serra Grande is a magical and sacred place, known for
its natural beauty, ranging from the forest and its
compositions to the beaches that brighten your eyes
and warm your heart.
Located in the south of Bahia, on the Cocoa Coast, Serra Grande, known for its natural beauty and tranquility, is a district of the city of Uruçuca, a region surrounded by great biodiversity. This place preserves 20km of primitive beaches with clear and warm waters, and one of the most important national parks in the region, which is the Serra do Conduru National Park with an area of approximately 8,500 hectares of Atlantic Forest reserve. The park is home to a wide variety of species, including many threatened with extinction, such as the jaguar and the black-faced lion tamarin.
The Village Community is very welcoming and hospitable and its cultural and spiritual roots tend to be very present in everyday life. The cocoa culture is still very strong and brings with it processes of great wisdom and ancestral clarity. Furthermore, the region has a very rich alternative scene, with local artists who arrive and express their art through music, dance, cuisine, therapies...
