Beach sights in Itacaré
- Sort by:
The coast south of Itacaré is characterized by rough surf (better for surfing than swimming) and cove beaches separated by hills covered with rain forest. Some beaches, such as idyllic Prainha (reachable by trail from Praia do Ribeira), are private and charge entrance fees. Praia da Concha is an ordinary city beach. Resende, Tiririca and Ribeira beaches lie within 1.5km south of town and are frequented by surfers.
Highly recommended are the paradisiacal Engenhoca, Havaizinho and Itacarezinho beaches, 12km south of town.
The principal excursion offered by travel agencies is up the Peninsula de Maraú, with stops at Lagoa Azul and Praia Taipús de Fora. A word of advice: maximize your comfort by assuring that the vehicle's seats face forward.
