    Sea and wind conditions have to be very good to stay anchored here. Our first night was reasonable, but then came a cold front that was making the boat rocking worse and worse, making it impossible to sleep. One tip is to anchor as close to the port as possible and in the corner, but it would be important to try to talk to the port for permission. The Yacht Club offers free access to its facilities, has a restaurant and has cold showers for showering. They also do the free shuttle service, just call on channel 16. Ilhéus is a very nice city and has a history linked to cocoa and chocolate. There is a nearby supermarket called Itão, which has several types of homemade bread of many different flavors, worth a try!

    As condições de mar e vento tem que estar muito boas para ficar ancorado aqui. Nossa primeira noite foi razoável, porém depois entrou uma frente fria que foi piorando cada vez mais o balanço do barco, ficando impossível de dormir. Uma dica é ancorar o mais próximo possível do porto e até lá dentro no canto, porém seria importante tentar falar com o porto para pedir autorização. O Yacht clube libera acesso gratuito às suas dependências, possuem um restaurante e tem chuveiros frios para tomar banho. Também fazem o serviço de leva e traz de graça, basta chamar no canal 16. Ilhéus é uma cidade bem agradável e tem uma história ligada ao cacau e chocolate. Tem um supermercado próximo chamado Itão, que tem vários tipos de pão caseiros de vários sabores diferentes, vale a pena experimentar!

    Good anchorage if conditions are right. The swell enters the bay easily, so any wind that causes your boat to be at an angle to the swell will make it very rolly. Docking the tender is possible at the yacht club (which didn’t charge us anything and doesn’t seem to have facilities). The club’s gates close at 5pm during the week. The town is nothing special.
