MORE ABOUT ITACARÉ

It is approximately 75km to the airport in Ilheus (IOS), and about 440km to the state capital, Salvador da Bahia. Today the municipal of Itacare has about 19.000 inhabitants.

HOW IS ITACARE: For many years, the difficult access to Itacaré – more than 50 km on dirt roads – kept it isolated. The road connecting Ilhéus to Itacaré, BA-001, was finished in 1998. Since then, the number of tourists has increased constantly, and many hotels, inns and restaurants have been built. In addition, many beaches are deserted during most of the year. Itacaré is still the refuge for nature lovers, surfers and those in search of the real Bahia. Its coast is a succession of beaches and hills covered with woods and palm trees. The beaches located near the city are the ones most frequented and have very good infrastructure of tourism. The most distant ones are deserted and very beautiful, and only a few can be reached by car. The region also is rich in rivers and waterfalls that are all worth a visit. The village has the charm of the past, with its cobblestone streets and old houses. Most of Itacaré’s inns are located on Concha beach, near downtown. The night life in Itacaré is very lively because of its many bars and restaurants. You can listen and dance to reggae music, in Coroinha beach, to forró (typical dance from the northeast of Brazil), at Magia da Bahia Freak Bar. At Conchas beach, the “luau” (Capoeira dance in the moon light on the beach) is guaranteed.

WHEN TO GO / CLIMATE: Itacaré can be visited all year long, as there’s sun and warm waters during the all the year. The climate is tropical with temperatures range from 25ºC to 30ºC, but they can climb to 40ºC in the summer – from December to February. The sun shines all year long, but during the winter months – May to September – it rains more frequent, but it doesn’t get in the way of visitors.

HOW TO GO: By Air: The nearest airport is in Ilhéus, approx 75km from Itacare village. It receives regular flights from Brazil’s main cities, and the nearest international airport is in Salvador.
By Highway: take road BA-001, a paved road that connects Ilhéus to Itacaré, along the coast. Cars may be rented in Ilhéus and the distance may take approximately 1,5-hour.

The most frequented is Cleandro, near the Contas River. But there are many other rivers and waterfalls, of all sizes, that can be found by hiking along the mountain trails.

BEACHES

Resende Beach
This is a small bay with immense palm trees, white sand, natural pools and good surfing waves. It is near downtown, but it has no infrastructure because it is located in a protected area where construction is prohibited. Access is on foot over a small trail leaving the main street (the Beaches Way) where parking is available.

Concha Beach
Itacaré’s largest beach with infrastructure. Located near downtown, Concha Beach is a clear water beach, without waves and with many palm trees. In the summer, there are many stands serving beverages and food, making it the most frequented beach. Facing North, in front of the Contas River bay, it offers one of the most beautiful views of Itacaré. The end of the beach, near the lighthouse, is the best place to watch the sunset.

Tiririca Beach
Titirica Beach, with its strong waves, is frequented by surfers all year long. It is considered to be Bahia’s best wave peak.

Costa Beach
Small beach with many palm trees located only 1 km from the city. Located between Tiririca and Ribeira Beaches, Costa Beach has soft, white sand. Although it is easy to access, there is no infrastructure. Not many people go to this beach. Swimming is very dangerous because of the strong currents. It is advisable to visit it only to enjoy the view. The neighboring beaches are better for swimming.

Ribeira Beach
This beautiful beach is surrounded by Atlantic Woods. Nearby, a small creek ripples down the hill forming waterfalls, until reaching a dam, creating a fresh water natural pool. This is the last beach accessible by car along the Beaches Way and it has many stands serving beverages and food. It is well frequented on weekends and holidays. Whoever wants some peace and quiet can take the trails leaving from Ribeira towards Siriaco and Prainha Beaches.

It is also a site for sea turtle spawning. On the north, a waterfall flows down from the forest and falls directly on the sand.

Serra Grande Beach
South of Tijuipe River, there are several kilometers of beautiful unknown beaches: the Serra Grande beaches, in the Environmental Protection Area. Sargi’s Beach, which is 4.5 km long, has refined sand, clear waters, slow pounding surf and warm water currents. It also has most of the inns, bars, restaurants and stands. The Pé da Serra beach is the best place to watch the arrival of rafts. The Pompilho, Prainha, do Guedes and Foz do Tijuipe beaches are nature in its purest state and access to them is restricted.
