Pedra Furada Island, Península de Maraú, Bahia, Brazil

This oddly beautiful place is located on the Pedra Furada Islands, Peninsula of Maraú, Bahia, Brazil. The translation of Pedra Furada is “island with a hole in the rock,” as you can see in the picture below. This is one of many islands located on the Peninsula of Maraú, but Pedra Furada is the most famous island in the Maraú region. First, because of its unique beauty, but also because its rocks played a major role in blocking access to the island from the Dutch during the years 1624 to 1627. The population at that time, the Macamamus, used many rocks to close the access channel and prevented the Dutch’s boats from accessing the Maraú Islands. The Dutch had to get out of their boat and fight for their lives with the Macamamus; the Macamamus won the fight!
